We have isolated C15orf5, a novel human gene lacking homology to any known protein. The C15orf5 gene encodes a transcript of 1, 519 nt with an ORF of 94 amino acids and a predicted protein size of 11.5 kDa. Northern blot analysis showed enhanced expression of C15orf5 in heart. C15orf5 was mapped to chromosome 15q23-q24 using the Stanford TNG4 Radiation Hybrid panel.
