Abstract

We report the sequence, tissue distribution, and chromosome location of a novel gene, PDCD9 (programmed cell death 9). PDCD9 is the mammalian counterpart of the Gallus gallus pro-apoptotic protein p52. The human cDNA has an open reading frame of 1314 nucleotides and was predicted to encode a protein of 438 amino acids with a calculated mass of 50 kDa. The protein sequences of chicken, mouse, and human PDCD9 are remarkably conserved. PDCD9 mRNA is expressed ubiquitously in adult tissues, displaying a stronger signal in heart, skeletal muscle, kidney, and liver. PDCD9 was mapped to chromosome 5q11.
