We report here the complete genomic nucleotide sequence for the Atlantic salmon growth-hormone gene (asGH), including 600 bp of 5' flanking sequences. The primary transcription (3651 nt) is significantly longer than that of the mammalian genes, mainly because of larger intron sizes, but also because the asGH gene contains an additional intron (intron 5). The coding regions of the asGH gene have been compared to the corresponding regions from rainbow trout (cDNA and genomic), coho salmon (cDNA… CONTINUE READING
