The intron-exon organization for the murine dopamine D3 receptor gene was determined. A novel intron of approximately 1 kb was identified in both rat and mouse D3 receptor genes. This intron (termed intron 4) is situated between coding nucleotides 723 and 724, resulting in a split of former exon 4 (containing nucleotides 527-801) into two separate exons (exon 4 and exon 5). Thus, the coding regions of the D2 and D3 receptor genes contain an identical number of exons (seven exons) and share a… CONTINUE READING
