Two polymorphic dinucleotide repeats separated by a short spacer are localized in the promoter region of the serotonin receptor 2C gene (HTR2C). One of the repeats was found to be evolutionary conserved between humans and rhesus monkeys. Although promoter-associated microsatellites have previously been shown to regulate expression of different genes, we did… CONTINUE READING
