Abundance of mimitin transcripts in human tissues. 32P-labelled molecular probe for mimitin or beta actin transcript (control) was used for hyridization with commercial membrane loaded with 2 μg of mRNA isolated from 12 different human tissues: 1. brain, 2. heart, 3. skeletal muscles, 4. colon, 5. thymus, 6. spleen, 7. kidney, 8. liver, 9. small intestine, 10. placenta, 11. lung, 12. peripheral blood leukocytes. For mimitin gene, a single trasncript of 640 nt is detected; for beta actin a single 2.0 kb band is present in all lanes. A 1.8 kb actin isoform is visible in the heart and skeletal muscle lanes.
