We report here the nucleotide sequence of a clone, C2H2-34.10, isolated from a human brain cDNA library using degenerate oligodeoxyribonucleotide hybridization. C2H2-34.10 has extensive homology to the Xenopus laevis 5S DNA/RNA-binding protein, TFIIIA. The deduced amino acid (aa) sequence of the human clone gives a protein of 363 aa with identity to TFIIIA from both X. laevis (57%) and Rana pipiens (59%). This human clone contains nine C2H2-type zinc fingers like frog TFIIIA. Northern blot analysis indicates that the C2H2-34.10 RNA is expressed in human ovary, as well as human neuronal cell lines.
