A cDNA encoding the ovine hematopoietic growth factor interleukin-3 (IL-3), has been cloned. A 560-bp cDNA, containing the entire protein coding region, was amplified from activated mesenteric lymph node cells. The cDNA was found to share 58% nucleotide identity with hIL-3 and 48% identity with mIL-3. The predicted ovine amino-acid sequence shares 36 and 30% identity, respectively, with the corresponding human and murine proteins. © 1994.
