The tandem array of color pigment genes on chromosome Xq28 contains nested exons of a distinct gene. This gene (termed TEX28) is composed of five exons that span almost the entire distance between the protein-coding regions of the color pigment genes and a transketolase-related gene. Although most of the TEX28 gene is repeated within the color pigment gene array, the exclusion of exon 1 from the array is predicted to restrict transcription to a single copy of the gene. The TEX28 gene encodes a… CONTINUE READING
