Molecular analysis and chromosomal assignment of the canine CALC-I/α-CGRP gene

Abstract

We have isolated a recombinant phage harboring the canine CALC-I/α-CGRP gene. The gene spans a region of approx. 5.3 kb and consists of six exons with sizes ranging from 95 bp (exon 2) and 494 bp (exon 4). By alternative splicing, two transcripts with ORFs of 390 and 384 nt are generated. These encode either the 32-amino acid-long hormone calcitonin (CALC… (More)
