Which mdm-2 cDNA do you need? Mouse? There are three human variants?
Did you try the mouse group who first cloned the cDNA:
Fakharzadeh, S.S., Trusko, S.P. & George, D.L. (1991). Tumorigenic
potential associated with enhanced expression of a gene that is
amplified in a mouse tumor cell line. EMBO J., 10(6), 1565-1569.
There are three mdm2 variants in humans:
Sigalas, I. & Lunec, J. Multiple alternate spliced mdm2 transcripts
with loss of p53 binding domain sequences: transforming ability and
frequent detection in human cancer. Unpublished.
Check out GenBank accession U033199. If you need the human probe, just
made some custom oligonucleotides.
