Human c-ros-1 gene homologous to the v-ros sequence of UR2 sarcoma virus encodes for a transmembrane receptorlike molecule.


We isolated a human gene (designated c-ros-1) homologous to the v-ros sequence of UR2 sarcoma virus. Ten exons, 1,414 base pairs spanning 26 kilobases, contained a tyrosine kinase domain, a transmembrane domain, and a part of an extracellular domain carrying an N glycosylation site which was not acquired by UR2 sarcoma virus. The predicted structure of c-ros-1 is unique among the src family and clearly distinct from the human insulin receptor.
