Abstract:The genomic 3' structure of the gene coding for the human slow skeletal troponin T (TNNT1) gene, is reported. An intron of 912 nucleotides containing an Alu-element has been identified and characterized. The complexity of the sequenced region suggests an alternative exon use. The present results may be valuable for further studies on the gene structure of TNNT1 and the related troponin gene family.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
