We have isolated a cDNA sequence coding for a part of human tissue plasminogen activator. mRNA coding for tissue plasminogen activator was partially purified, copied into double-stranded cDNA, and cloned into Escherichia coli. Two sets of partially overlapping oligodeoxynucleotide mixtures corresponding to all possible coding sequences for a known portion of the tissue plasminogen activator gene were prepared. One set was used as a probe to screen cDNA containing bacterial clones and both were used as probes in hybridization against purified plasmid DNA. Of 4,200 bacterial clones examined, 1 carried a plasmid that hybridized to both sets of oligonucleotides. This plasmid contained a 370-base-pair cDNA insert, which was shown by nucleotide sequence analysis to code for the cleavage site region in the one-chain form of the human tissue plasminogen activator.
