Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A cDNA (879 bp) containing the complete open reading frame of ovine Fms-related tyrosine kinase 3 ligand (Flt3-L) was amplified by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), cloned and sequenced. The deduced amino acid sequence has 97.6% similarity with bovine Flt3-L isoform 1 and shares the long cytoplasmic domain observed in bovine Flt3-L but not in human Flt3-L.
