cDNA cloning and Escherichia coli expression of UK114 tumor antigen.


Experimental evidence indicates that the antineoplastic effects of UK101, a goat liver perchloric acid extract, is likely due to one of its constituent proteins: the 14 kDa protein named UK114. The cDNA encoding UK114, obtained by PCR methodologies, contains an open reading frame coding for a protein of 137 amino acids with a theoretical molecular mass of… (More)
