Show Summary Details


The nucleotide sequence of a cDNA coding for the human acylamino acid-releasing enzyme (AARE, also known as acylpeptide hydrolase) [EC] subunit has been determined. The amino acid sequence of human AARE subunit deduced from its cDNA nucleotide sequence showed a high degree of identity (91.5%) with both the corresponding proteins from the pig and the rat. The AARE cDNA shows 99.2% identity with a 3.3 kb cDNA transcribed from a locus (DNF15S2) on the short arm of human chromosome 3, whose deletion is associated with small cell lung cancer, taking into consideration that the sequence of the 3.3-kb cDNA previously reported was caused by misreading.
