Abstract

We have isolated two kinds of cDNAs and the gene encoding human peptide YY and determined their nucleotide sequences. The human peptide YY gene is composed of four exons and three introns spanning approx. 1.2 kbp. Two mRNA species are generated from the gene by alternative splicing of the third intron.
