The prion protein gene: Identifying regulatory signals using marsupial sequence
The function of the prion protein gene (PRNP) and its normal product PrPC is elusive. We used comparative genomics as a strategy to understand the normal function of PRNP. As the reliability of comparisons increases with the number of species and increased evolutionary distance, we isolated and sequenced a 66.5 kb BAC containing the PRNP gene from a distantly related mammal, the model Australian marsupial Macropus eugenii (tammar wallaby). Marsupials are separated from eutherians such as human...[Show more]
