α-Catenins (CTNNAs) are essential for the regulation of cell-cell and cell-matrix interactions in tissues. All human CTNNA genes contain antisense oriented leucine rich repeat transmembrane (LRRTM) genes within their seventh introns. Recently, a haplotype upstream of one of the human LRRTM genes, LRRTM1 that resides in CTNNA2, was shown to be associated with handedness and schizophrenia. Here, we show that both CTNNA1 and CTNNA2 contain alternative 5' exons linked to bidirectional promoters… CONTINUE READING
