Phosphoinositide (PI) 3-kinases have been shown to have critical roles in signal transduction, cell transformation and intracellular protein trafficking. Reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction methods, using degenerate primers derived from the lipid kinase consensus region, were utilised to identify PI 3-kinases in the normal human breast. Here we report the cDNA cloning of a novel human PI 3-kinase isoform, HsC2-PI3K. This PI 3-kinase is most closely related to the recently described C2 domain-containing family of PI 3-kinases which includes Drosophila PI3K_68D/cpk and murine cpk-m/p170. Sequence analysis suggests that HsC2-PI3K is a second distinct mammalian member of the C2 domain-containing PI 3-kinase family. Northern blot analysis of human tissues indicates that HsC2-PI3K is widely expressed. Fluorescence in situ hybridisation has mapped HsC2-PI3K to chromosome 1q32.
