Sequence analysis of mouse tyrosinase cDNA and the effect of melanotropin on its gene expression.


Using human tyrosinase cDNA as a probe, a mouse tyrosinase cDNA clone representing approximately 75% of the tyrosinase coding region and a mouse genomic clone which includes the tyrosinase 5' coding sequences were isolated: nucleotide and deduced amino acid sequence of the mouse tyrosinase gene were determined from these clones. The predicted amino acid… (More)
