We have isolated rat rig/ribosomal protein S15 gene from a DNA library derived from a rat insulinoma and determined the complete nucleotide sequence. The rat rig/S15 gene is composed of four exons and three introns spanning 2 kbp and exhibits distinctive structural features unique for a ribosomal protein gene.
