Journal Article

We have previously isolated a cDNA clone encoding the common acute lymphoblastic leukemia antigen (CALLA) from a normal human kidney library. Analysis of the amino acid sequence deduced from nucleotide sequencing of this cDNA established that CALLA is identical to the recently cloned human neutral endopeptidase (NEP; E.C. 3.4.24.11). Southern blot analysis of SacI fragments of DNA from human-rodent somatic cell hybrids using a 1.6-kb CALLA cDNA probe showed that the CALLA-NEP gene is located on human chromosome 3.
