The human insulin gene contains two intervening sequences, one is within the region transcribed into the 5′-untranslated segment of the mRNA and the other interrupts the C-peptide encoding region. A comparison of the human with the rat insulin genes indicates potential regulatory regions in the DNA segment preceding the gene and suggests that the ancestral form of the insulin gene had two intervening sequences. 
The highly polymorphic region near the human insulin gene is composed of simple tandemly repeating sequences
The sequence of the highly polymorphic region near the human insulin gene, which begins 363 base pairs before the start of transcription and extends upstream, indicated that it is generated byExpand
Analysis of a 1963-bp polymorphic region flanking the human insulin gene.
The nucleotide sequence of a long polymorphic region located 365 bp upstream from the human insulin gene is reported. The region is composed of 139 repeating sequences whose consensus structure isExpand
Nucleotide sequence of the chromosomal gene for human fibroblast (beta 1) interferon and of the flanking regions.
The nucleotide sequence of the human fibroblast (beta 1) interferon chromosomal gene and its flanking regions was determined. These results confirm the absence of intervening sequences in the gene.Expand
Structure of a human gastrin gene (hormone gene/DNA sequence analysis/intervening sequence/polyadt
TLDR
A gastrin gene was isolated from a genomic library of human DNA and contains two intervening sequences that separates the region coding for the prin- cipal hormonal form of gastrin, the heptadecapeptide, from the region codes for the major amino-terminal portion of the gastrin precursor. Expand
Analysis of the regions flanking the human insulin gene and sequence of an Alu family member.
The regions around the human insulin gene have been studied by heteroduplex, hybridization and sequence analysis. These studies indicated that there is a region of heterogeneous length locatedExpand
Polymorphism in the 5'-flanking region of the human insulin gene and its possible relation to type 2 diabetes.
TLDR
The arrangement of the human insulin gene in DNA from 87 individuals was analyzed by the Southern blot hybridization technique with a cloned genomic human insulin probe and a striking length polymorphism to a potential promoter region suggests that these insertions may play a role in insulin gene expression.

The Insulin Gene Is Located on the Short Arm of Chromosome 11 in Humans
TLDR
Analysis of the human ONA sequences present in a human-mouse somatic cell hybrid line possessing a translocation involving human chromosomes 11 and X indicates that the human insulin gene is located on the short arm of chromosome 11 in the region p13→pter. Expand
Identical mRNA for preproglucagon in pancreas and gut.
TLDR
Cloning and sequencing of the cDNAs, coding for preproglucagon from human pancreas and colon, as well as primer extension analysis of RNA from Pancreas, ileum and colon point to an identical transcriptional start site in all tissues. Expand
Complete nucleotide sequence of the human δ-globin gene
TLDR
The complete nucleotide sequence of the human δ-globin gene is presented and it is unable to identify unambiguously the structural basis of the low level of expression characteristic of theδ- globin gene. Expand
Expression of the human insulin gene in an alternate mammalian cell and in cell extracts.
TLDR
Analysis of the RNAs containing insulin sequences showed that the insulin introns are excised with precision, and the insulin promoter (cap site) and polyadenylation sites are recognized but are less efficiently employed than the viral late promoter and terminator. Expand

Comparison of the nucleotide sequence of the genomic gene and cDNA containing the sequence complementary to fibroin mRNA has confirmed the existence of an intervening sequence 970 bases long, and pinpointed the 5′ coding-intervening junction at +64−66 and the 3′ intervening-coding junction at -1034−1036.

TLDR
The two independently isolated β-globin clones differ from each other by the presence of a Pst I restriction enzyme cleavage site within the large intervening sequence of the δ- globin gene of one of the clones, which suggests that the human DNA carried in the two clones was derived from two homologous chromosomes which were heterozygous for the PstI restriction enzyme recognition sequence.
