Identification and Characterization of a Novel Form of the Human L-Dopa Decarboxylase mRNA


L-Dopa decarboxylase (DDC) has been cloned from several species and was shown to undergo alternative splicing within its 5′-untranslated and coding regions. In this report we describe a novel splice variant of DDC mRNA in human tissue, lacking exons 10 - 15 of the full-length transcript but including an alternative exon 10. The isolated alternative human… (More)
