From a human fetal-brain cDNA library we isolated a putative human homologue of the murine Tcte1 gene. The cDNA, designated TCTEL1, contained an open reading frame of 339 nucleotides encoding 113 amino acids. The predicted peptides of TCTEL1 showed 94% and 55% identity (100% and 94% similarity) with those of murine Tcte1 and human RP3. Northern-blot analysis revealed a 0.9-kb transcript in all tissues examined. This gene was mapped by FISH to chromosome bands 6q25.2 --> q25.3, the syntenic region of the murine t-complex locus of chromosome 17.
