Identification of a cDNA coding for the SerH3 surface protein of Tetrahymena thermophila.

Author information

Department of Biology, Cleveland State University, Ohio 44115.


We have identified a Tetrahymena thermophila cDNA-containing plasmid (pC6) which hybridizes to a 1.47-kB RNA whose changes in cellular concentration parallel the changes in synthetic rate of a major cell surface protein. From a molecular and genetic analysis of strains expressing the gene (SerH3) encoding this protein, and of strains expressing immunologically distinct alleles of this gene, we conclude that pC6 encodes a portion of the SerH3 allele.
