cDNA cloning of porcine interleukin 2 by polymerase chain reaction.

Porcine interleukin 2 (IL-2) cDNA was cloned by polymerase chain reaction (PCR), using primers derived from the corresponding bovine sequence. The resulting porcine DNA sequence encodes a 154 residue IL-2 primary translation product. Comparison of the mature, secreted form of porcine IL-2 with those of other species was carried out in an attempt to identify differences that might contribute to the observed differing species specificities.[1]
