Cloning of human muscle phosphofructokinase cDNA.


PMID 2822475

Abstract

Three overlapping cDNA clones for human muscle phosphofructokinase (HMPFK) covering the complete coding sequence were isolated. The sequence included a poly(A) tail, a 399 bp 3'-untranslated region, a 2337 bp coding region for 779 amino acid residues and a part of the 5'-untranslated region. Homologies between HMPFK and rabbit muscle phosphofructokinase (RMPFK) were 96% of the amino acids and 89% of the nucleotides in the coding region. Like RMPFK, HMPFK also possessed the internal homology between C- and N-halves in its primary structure. Cloning of HMPFK cDNA will help to identify the molecular defect in patients with glycogenosis type VII (HMPFK deficiency).
