The NEDO database was constructed to make available sequence data of cDNA clones from the Kazusa DNA Research Institute human spleen cDNA library, which was determined by the NEDO human cDNA sequencing project. If you would like to know more about the NEDO human cDNA sequencing project, please visit the NEDO Web site.
Although the cDNA clones provided by other groups for the NEDO project were generated by the "oligo-capping" method, the cDNAs supplied by Kazusa DNA Research Institute were generated by conventional methods and strictly size-selected from a cDNA library of adult human spleen. Consequently, not all of our cDNAs may be full-length, though all possess relatively long cDNA inserts, whose average size is about 4.5 kb. In this project, cDNAs having unknown end sequences and high protein-coding probability at their 5' ends were selected and sequenced. Please remember that the clone selection method is not identical to that of the Kazusa human cDNA sequencing project. This is the reason why we designate cDNA clones obtained through the NEDO project with the prefix FLJ followed by a five-digit number and cDNAs discovered by the Kazusa cDNA sequencing project by the prefix KIAA followed by a four-digit number.
If you should need our cDNA clone(s) for research purposes, please follow the
necessary procedures described in the clone request section.
