Using 5' RACE, we have isolated four additional exons of the mu opioid receptor gene (Oprm), resulting in a gene spanning over 250 kb. The four new exons are contained within eight additional splice variants containing exon 11 at the 5' terminus. Exon 11, which is under the control of a previously unknown upstream promoter, and exon 12 are located… CONTINUE READING
