The frag- prising at least five isoforms that have different signal transduction ment amplified from a wild-type DW/Pas mouse was sequenced and putative binding/transport capabilities (Lee et al. 1996; Tarta- with primer NewR1. A portion of this fragment showed perfect glia et al. 1995; Chua et al. 1997). A molecular analysis of the homology to the segment 38 of coding exon 6 of the Ex5L fi Ex4L functions of the various Lepr isoforms will require information fragment from the db-Pas mice. This indicates that the segment regarding the molecular nature of various spontaneous mutations that interrupts coding exon 6 in the Mammalian Genome Springer Journals
