  1. * Sequence is based on the corresponding ovine sequence obtained from an ovine est clone.
  2. ND, the complete sequence of the clone was not determined, as the ovine TGF-β1 sequence is known. The clone was sequenced from both ends and resulting sequence compared to the known ovine TGF-β1 sequence to confirm identity of the isolated cDNA.
  3. N/A as the sequence overlaps that of AY751461.
