Identification of an additional gene belonging to the alpha 2 adrenergic receptor family in the human genome by PCR.

Abstract

We here describe the cloning of an additional gene, called alpha 2-1.8, which is similar to the previously cloned human alpha 2-adrenergic receptor located on chromosome 4. The alpha 2-1.8 gene was identified by using the polymerase chain reaction with primers specific for sequences in transmembrane regions 2 and 5 of the previously isolated human alpha 2… (More)
