Determination of the primary sequence of the duck αD globin mRNA and comparison of all adult duck and chick globin mRNA sequences


The nucleotide sequence of the duck αD globin mRNA was determined. Its main feature is an exceptionally short 3′ non-coding segment of only 46 nucleotides, placed after the coding sequence of 141 codons. The last of the 6 adult globin mRNA of duck and chicken being thus sequenced, a comparison of all their features has become possible. Comparing the duck αD… (More)
