Abstract A new allele, DNASE1*6, of human deoxyribonuclease I (DNase I) has been discovered by isoelectric focusing: its gene product has the most cathodic pI of the six electrophoretic variants. Results of DNA sequencing, mismatched PCR-restriction fragment length polymorphism, and transient transfection of the variant construct showed that the mutant was caused by a C-T transition at nucleotide position 1826, resulting in an Arg to Cys substitution at amino acid position 185 of the mature enzyme. The variant isoenzyme, expressed in COS-7 cells, was more labile than the other types. Instability and an increase in the pI value of the variant suggest that a structural alteration, perhaps due to aberrant formation of a disulfide bond, could occur in the enzyme.
