cDNA cloning and structure of mouse putative Ah receptor.

Mouse cDNA clones for a putative Ah receptor have been isolated from a cDNA library of mRNA from Hepa-1 cells by an oligonucleotide probe produced by PCR with a pair of primers which was synthesized according to the reported N-terminal sequence of 26 amino acids. The cDNA clones encode a polypeptide of 805 amino acids with a helix-loop-helix motif and with some similarity to a certain region designated PAS of Drosophila Per and Sim, and human Arnt protein. Cotransfection of an expression vector of the Ah receptor with a reporter plasmid pMC6.3k consisting of CYP1A1 promoter and CAT structural gene into CV-1 cells enhanced the CAT expression in response to added 3-methylcholanthrene.
