Southern blot analysis of rat genomic DNA reveals the presence of numerous sequences homologous to the rat MT-1 gene. We have isolated and characterized by sequence analysis the rat MT-1 gene and three related processed pseudogenes. We discuss mechanisms by which these pseudogenes were formed. The rat MT-1 and MT-2 structural genes are shown to be separated by 4 kb of intergenic DNA. By sequence analysis of the MT-2 structural gene, we compare features of the MT gene sequences which regulate… CONTINUE READING
