Overlapping cDNAs 3.8 kb in lenght containing a long open reading frame were obtained that hybridized exclusively to transcripts from hematopoietic cells. Sequence analysis found eight potential membrane domains and two possible cAMP/cGMP phosphorylation sites. This sequence exhibited no homologies with the EMBL/Genbank nucleic acid, SwissProt or GenPept amino acid data bases. The gene is located at 12q13.1, a region of occasional translocations in hematopoietic neoplasia and a rare folic acid fragile site, Fra 12A.
