Abstract

Highly purified transferrin mRNA characterized by electrophoretic and sedimentational homogeneity has been obtained from rat liver, with a sedimentation coefficient of 20S and a molecular weight of 0.86 MD. In a system consisting of a lysate of rabbit reticulocytes the Tf-mRNA programs the synthesis of an immunoreactive precursor of transferrin with a molecular weight of 82 kD. More than 50% of the nucleotide sequence of Tf-mRNA is present in the paired state.
