Using autoantibodies from a Sjögren's syndrome patient, we have previously identified a 230-kDa peripheral membrane protein associated with the cytosolic face of the trans-Golgi (Kooy, J., Toh, B. H., Pettitt, J. M., Erlich, R. and Gleeson, P. A. (1992) J. Biol. Chem. 267, 20255-20263). Here we report the molecular cloning and sequence analysis of human p230 and the localization of its gene to chromosome 6p12 22. Partial cDNA clones, isolated from a HeLa cell cDNA library using autoantibodies, were used to obtain additional cDNAs, which together span 7695 base pairs (bp). The p230 mRNA is approximately 7.7 kilobases. Two alternatively spliced mRNAs for p230 were detected. These differed by 2..
