The entire gene for human serum albumin (HSA) has been isolated from a genomic DNA library, carried in the lambda Charon 4A vector. Six independent isolates have been found to hybridize to a cloned HSA cDNA probe, and all six clones share restriction site sequence homology in the overlapping portion of their DNA. These results seem to indicate that the albumin gene is single-copy, or unique, within the human haploid genome. Measuring from the "CAP" site to the "poly(A)" addition site, albumin… CONTINUE READING
