Abstract

HIN-200 proteins are interferon-inducible proteins capable of regulating cell growth, senescence, differentiation and death. Using a combination of in silico analysis of NCBI EST databases and screening of murine C57BL/6 cDNA libraries we isolated novel murine HIN-200 cDNAs designated Ifi206S and Ifi206L encoding two putative mRNA splice variants. The p206S and p206L protein isoforms have a modular domain structure consisting of an N-terminal PAAD/DAPIN/Pyrin domain, a region rich in serine, threonine and proline residues and a C-terminal 200 B domain characteristic of other HIN-200 proteins. Ifi206 mRNA was detected only in the spleen and lung of BALB/c and C57BL/6 mice and expression was u..
