We report here the isolation and genomic organization of the orthologous mouse Duffy gene, named Dfy. It is a single copy gene located in chromosome 1 in a region homologous to the human Duffy gene (FY). Sequence analyses indicate that Dfy consists of two exons: exon 1 of 55 nucleotides, which encodes 7 amino acid residues; and exon 2 of 1038 nucleotides, which encodes 327 residues. The single intron consists of 462 nucleotides. The 5'-end promoter region contains motifs involved in vertebrate… CONTINUE READING
