Cloning and sequence analysis of a murine cDNA encoding glutamate decarboxylase (GAD65)

Biochim Biophys Acta. 1993 Oct 19;1216(1):157-60. doi: 10.1016/0167-4781(93)90056-j.


We report the cloning and cDNA sequence of murine GAD65. Murine GAD65 is comprised of 585 amino acids and shares a high degree of homology with human and rat GAD65, with most divergences occurring near their amino-termini. The murine GAD65 sequence will allow evaluation of the role of this gene in murine neurogenetic and autoimmune diseases.
