Title: Nucleotide sequences encoding mammalian calcium activated chloridechannel-adhesion molecules

Abstract: Nucleotide sequences which encode a mammalian lung endothelial celladhesion molecule are disclosed. Also disclosed are nucleotide sequenceswhich encode a lung endothelial cell adhesion molecule-associated protein.Recombinant lung endothelial cell adhesion molecule or recombinant lungendothelial cell adhesion molecule-associated protein may be obtained byculturing in a medium a host cell genetically engineered to contain andexpress a nucleotide sequence according to the present invention, andrecovering the recombinant lung endothelial cell adhesionmolecule-associated protein or recombinant lung endothelial cell adhesionmolecule-associated protein from the culture medium.
