The protein responsible for db activity in the hagfish (hfCNT) was identified by molecular cloning and functional expression of its cONN. When the hagfish cDNA sequence was compared to the EST database, partial matches were found with sequences from human and mouse mammary gland and human colon adenocarcinoma. The human and mouse cib transporters were subsequently identified by molecular cloning of cDNAs from differentiated HL-60 cells and mammary gland (hCNT3), and from mouse liver (mCNT3). hCNT3/mCNT3 are 79% identical and comprised of 691 and 703 amino acid residues, respectively.
