  • In a previous study, we isolated genomic clones encoding core 2 beta-1,6-N-acetylglucosaminyltransferase (C2GnT) and blood group IGnT and proposed that these two genes were produced from a common ancestral gene by duplication, diversion and intron insertion. In the present study, we have isolated a pseudogene which is highly related to the gene of C2GnT. The sequence analysis of this pseudogene indicated that the pseudogene was produced by duplication of a common precursor gene for C2GnT. These… CONTINUE READING
