Abstract

From a human fetal-brain cDNA library we isolated a novel human cDNA, termed human adducin-like 70 (gene symbol ADDL), whose predicted amino acid sequence showed a high degree of homology to adducins. This cDNA clone (ADDL), which contained an open reading frame of 2,022 nucleotides encoding 674 amino acids, revealed 54%, 53%, and 59% identity in predicted amino acid sequence with alpha and beta components of human adducin and rat adducin 63, respectively. Human adducin-like 70 is likely to play an important role in the skeletal organization of the cell membrane. Northern blot analysis indicated ubiquitous expression of this gene in adult human tissues. We localized the gene to chromosome bands 10q24.2-->q24.3 by fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH).
