Translation of human macrophage activating factor (for glucose consumption) mRNA in Xenopus laevis oocytes.

Ishii Y , Osada H , Kobayashi Y , Obinata M , Natori S , Osawa T .

Total messenger RNA was extracted from a human T cell hybridoma, clone H-E4-9, which strongly produced macrophage activating factor for glucose consumption (MAF-G). This messenger RNA gave rise to functional MAF-G when translated in Xenopus laevis oocytes. Isoelectric focusing of culture supernatants of the mRNA-microinjected oocytes and the H-E4-9 cells revealed that the former contained MAF-Gs with isoelectric points of pH 5.0 and 3.0 while the latter contained MAF-Gs with isoelectric points of pH 5.0 and pH 3.3. Sucrose density gradient centrifugation analysis showed that MAF-G mRNA prepared from H-E4-9 cells sedimented at about 11.5 S.
