Full length cDNA and genomic DNA of porcine α-1,3-galactosyltransferase were isolated, and their structures were analysed. The coding region was encoded by six exons as in the mouse, and the length of each exon was conserved between the two species. The porcine exons were designated Exon 4–9, since in the mouse coding exons started from Exon 4. Introns tended to be longer in the porcine gene; the distance from Exon 4 to the 3′-end of Exon 9 was 24 kb, while this region was 18 kb in the mouse… CONTINUE READING
