We report here the entire exon/intron structure of the gene encoding the alpha-subunit of human Rab geranylgeranyl transferase (RABGGTA) gene, which is positioned in a tandem head-to-tail arrangement with the transglutaminase 1 (TGM1) gene, and its polyadenylation signal sequence is located just 2.3 kbp upstream of the capsite of TGM1. Even though TGM1 and… CONTINUE READING
