Abstract

A cDNA clone encoding the 11.5 kDa zinc-binding protein (ZnBP) was used to screen a genomic and a subgenomic rat liver library to isolate the corresponding genomic DNA. Positive clones were restriction-mapped and sequenced to give the primary structure of the ZnBP gene. A putative promotor region was detected.
