Abstract

Human glucocerebrosidase (GC)-encoding cDNA clones were isolated from a promyelocytic HL-60 cDNA library and analyzed. A novel cDNA clone was found to originate from a gene referred to as a GC pseudogene. Using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) with primers specific for the GC pseudogene, we found that all the human cell lines examined, HL-60, K-562, WI-38, HepG2 and HeLa, expressed a pseudogene transcript. In vitro translation of RNA synthesized by transcription of the pseudogene cDNA produced a polypeptide of approximately 30 kDa.
