Abstract

A cDNA encoding human platelet 6-phosphofructokinase (PFK; EC 2.7.1.11) has been isolated from a human lymphocyte Raji cell line cDNA library using a cDNA for human muscle PFK as a probe. The platelet cDNA contains 900bp of carboxy terminal coding sequence and 238bp of downstream untranslated region. The deduced amino acid sequence shows 71% identity to the amino acid sequence for the human muscle isoenzyme and 63% identity to the human liver isoenzyme. Almost all of the amino acid residues contributing to catalytic and effector sites in the three isoenzymes are conserved. The platelet gene has been assigned to chromosome 10p15.2-p15.3 by using the cDNA clone as a biotinylated probe against human chromosome spreads (Morrison et al. 1991, submitted to Human Genetics).
