Expression of multiple proliferin genes in mouse cells.


Several copies of the prolactin-related proliferin gene were detected in the mouse genome, encoding at least two distinct forms of proliferin. These forms correspond to proliferin cDNA clones derived from BALB/c 3T3 tissue culture and BALB/c placental RNA. Tissue culture and placental cells were each found to express both forms of proliferin.
