The single-copy gene coding for the human parathyroid hormone-like peptide was isolated from a human placental genomic library. The gene spans 13 kilobases and contains seven exons. Exons I and I1 encode 5’noncoding regions; each has its own transcription initiation site, and the two promoters are separated by over 1000 base pairs of genomic DNA. Exon I11… (More)
