Mouse leukosialin, previously known as the 3E8 antigen, is expressed primarily on cells of the hematopoietic and lymphoid lineages and is shown to be the mouse homologue to the human leukosialin/sialophorin and rat W3/13 molecules. A partial leukosialin cDNA clone was isolated via cross-species hybridization with a portion of a human leukosialin cDNA. This mouse cDNA clone was used to demonstrate that the leukosialin isoforms are encoded by a single mRNA species of approximately 4.2 kilobases (kb) and that the leukosialin gene is located on chromosome 7. Based on these results, mouse leukosialin is given the designation Ly48.
