To characterize the type-I keratin-encoding gene family around the mouse keratin 19-encoding gene (K19, EndoC), which encodes simple epithelial-type cytokeratin (CK), we screened a mouse genomic library by hybridization to a K19 cDNA probe. One clone of 16 kb contained the second to the sixth exons of K19 and the other keratin-encoding gene was located about 4 kb downstream from K19. Sequencing, Northern hybridization and genomic Southern blotting revealed that the downstream gene encodes the… CONTINUE READING
