The sequences of 5' ESTs derived from mRNAs encoding secreted proteins are
disclosed. The 5' ESTs may be to obtain cDNAs and genomic DNAs
corresponding to the 5' ESTs. The 5' ESTs may also be used in diagnostic,
forensic, gene therapy, and chromosome mapping procedures. Upstream
regulatory sequences may also be otained using the 5' ESTs. The 5' ESTs
may also be used to design expression vectors and secretion vectors.
