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.</dc:description> <dc:identifier>https://zenodo.org/record/1229420</dc:identifier> <dc:identifier>10.1006/bbrc.1994.1963</dc:identifier> <dc:identifier>oai:zenodo.org:1229420</dc:identifier> <dc:rights>info:eu-repo/semantics/openAccess</dc:rights> <dc:rights>http://creativecommons.org/publicdomain/zero/1.0/legalcode</dc:rights> <dc:title>Cloning and Analysis of MAGE-1-Related Genes</dc:title> <dc:type>info:eu-repo/semantics/article</dc:type> <dc:type>publication-article</dc:type> </oai_dc:dc>
