Molecular cloning of human myelin-associated glycoprotein

, : Molecular cloning of human myelin-associated glycoprotein. Journal of Neuroscience Research 24(2): 137-142

The nucleotide sequence for human myelin-associated glycoprotein (MAG) and its deduced amino acid sequence, obtained by analysis of two overlapping cDNA clones isolated from a human brain cDNA library, is presented and compared to that reported for rat MAG. The sequence provides an open reading frame of 1,878 nucleotides encoding a peptide of 626 amino acids with a calculated molecular weight of 69.1 kD. It is 89% homologous in nucleotide sequence to the large isoform of rat MAG, with 95% homology in the amino acid sequence. It contains 9 potential glycosylation sites, one more than in rat, and shares other key features with rat MAG, including 5 immunoglobulin-like regions of internal homology, an RGD sequence, and potential phosphorylation sites. Its structure appears to be highly conserved in evolution, possibly suggesting a close interdependence between its structure and function. The human gene is located on the proximal long arm of chromosome 19 (19q12----q13.2).
