We have isolated and sequenced full-length cDNA clones for leptin in the dasyurid marsupial Sminthopsis crassicaudata (fat-tailed dunnart). Southern and in situ hybridisation data indicated a single leptin gene in the S. crassicauda- ta genome, localised to arbitrary chromosome bands 5q24--> q31 on the long arm of chromosome 5, the short-arm terminus of… CONTINUE READING
