The structure of the human liver-type phosphofructokinase gene.


We have isolated the gene for the human liver-type phosphofructokinase, from upstream to the 5' mRNA terminus to beyond the polyadenylation site. The gene is at least 28 kb long and is divided into 22 exons; it contains conventional splice-junction sequences and one polyadenylation signal. Exons and introns are quite rich in G and C residues; some 60% of… (More)
