Human insulin receptor and its relationship to the tyrosine kinase family of oncogenes

Article metrics

Abstract

We have deduced the entire 1,370-amino-acid sequence of the human insulin receptor precursor from a single complementary DNA clone. The precursor starts with a 27-amino-acid signal sequence, followed by the receptor α-subunit, a precursor processing enzyme cleavage site, then the β-subunit containing a single 23-amino-acid transmembrane sequence. There are sequence homologies to human epidermal growth factor receptor and the members of the src family of oncogene products.
