The male-enhanced antigen-1 (Mea-1) gene was previously isolated from a bovine testicular cDNA library. In the present study, we cloned the full-length bovine genomic Mea-1 gene and compared this with the Mea-1 cDNA. The 1035-nucleotide bovine mRNA for Mea-1 (excluding the poly (A) tail) is encoded in three exons distributed over 3123 base pairs of the genome. Analysis of the 5' flanking sequence by primer extension mapping identified two main transcription start sites and several minor ones… CONTINUE READING
