Abstract

From a human fetal lung cDNA library we isolated and characterized a human cDNA highly homologous to Rp8, a rat gene associated with programmed cell death. This cDNA, termed PDCD2 (programmed cell death-2), contained an open reading frame of 1032 nucleotides encoding 344 amino acids; it revealed 81% identity in DNA sequence and 83% identity in amino acid sequence with rat Rp8. The gene represented by PDCD2 was expressed in all human tissues examined. We assigned the PDCD2 locus to chromosomal band 6q27 by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).
