A second, expressed thrombospondin (TSP) gene, Thbs2, has been identified in the mouse. The exon/intron organization of Thbs2 is highly conserved in comparison with Thbs1 in that exon size and the pattern of interruption of the reading frame by introns are preserved, but there is a marked divergence in coding sequence, primarily in the first 7 exons. On the other hand, the DNA and translated amino acid sequences of exons coding for the type I, II, and III repeats in the two TSPs are far better… CONTINUE READING
