We recently reported eDNA cloning and expres- Exon: iT h w r sion studies of the mouse mtTFA gene (Larsson et al. 1996), which has been named Tram in accord with accepted nomenclature and to correspond with the human homolog TFAM, previously described as TCF6 (Tiranti et al. 1995). We demonstrated that Tfam is widely expressed and that its transcripts are alternately spliced in testis; one of the three testis-specific Tram transcript isoforms encodes a protein that lacks most of the mitochondrial targeting signal and is Splxce donor sites A g http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Mammalian Genome Springer Journals
