In this study we cloned and analysed partial cDNA of tumor necrosis factor (TNF) and p75 TNF-R receptor of Syrian golden hamster (Mesocricetus auratus). We obtained a 382-bp sequence of TNF and a 148-bp sequence coding for p75 TNF-R. The primers used for the cloning were designed on the basis of inter-species homology, thus presumably can be used for cloning and analysis of TNF and p75 TNF-R genes of other mammals.
