Molecular cloning and sequencing of feline CD56 (N-CAM)
Abstract:We isolated feline CD56 cDNA to investigate the primary structure of CD56 of feline leukocytes. Sequencing analysis revealed that an open reading frame (2538 bp) encoded a homologue of a 140-kDa isoform of CD56. The predicted amino acid sequence showed 97.3% homology with that of humans.
