ceg1 gene was a novel human gene, which was cloned by bioinformatics research and RT-PCR. It was a single exon gene and located on human chromosome 14. The length of the cDNA was 2050 bp. Bioinformatics analysis predicted a 1340 bp complete open reading frame (ORF) which encoded a 446 amino acid protein, containing an EGF-like and CLECT domain. We found that the homologous genes of ceg1 in mouse embryo and chicken embryo were specifically expressed in the brain by in-situ hybridization. The result of RT-PCR of the mature mouse organs showed it was widely expressed in many organs. The result indicates that ceg1 gene may have an essential role in the development of brain and the maintenance of the organs' normal function. The analysis of expression and function profile of ceg1 gene may provide valuable insights into the functions of ceg1 in the development and function of human body.
