Isolation and characterization of two novel forms of the human prolactin receptor generated by alternative splicing of a newly identified exon 11.


We have identified a novel exon 11 of the human prolactin receptor (hPRLR) gene that is distinct from its rodent counterparts and have demonstrated the presence of two novel short forms of the hPRLR (S1(a) and S1(b)), which are derived from alternative splicing of exons 10 and 11. S1(a) encodes 376 amino acids (aa) that contain partial exon 10 and a unique… (More)
