The WNT16 gene at human chromosome 7q31.31 encodes two isoforms due to alternative splicing of an alternative promoter type. Here, we identified and characterized the rat Wnt16 and zebrafish wnt16 genes using bioinformatics. The rat Wnt16 and zebrafish wnt16 genes, consisting of four exons, were located within the AC117014.4 and CR925699.1 genome sequences… CONTINUE READING
