  "abstract": "The spectrum of MAGE gene expression in the human melanoma cell line DM150 was examined using reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction and cDNA cloning. We have examined isolated five full-length cDNAs from DM150 which were identified as MAGE-1, MAGE-3, MAGE-12 and two previously undescribed MAGE, MAGE-3b and MAGE-X2. DNA sequence analysis of the coding regions of the MAGE-3b and MAGE-X2 genes revealed 83% and 88% identity with MAGE-1, while MAGE-3b was 98% homologous with the full length MAGE-3 clone. The predicted amino acid sequences of MAGE-X2 and MAGE-3b contain consensus HLA-A1 peptide binding motifs, suggesting that, like MAGE-1, they may code for tumor-associated antigens. In addition, a nonamer peptide encoded by both the MAGE-3 and MAGE-12 genes was shown by direct binding studies to contain an aggretope for HLA-A2.",
