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.
