ORGANIZATION OF GH AND PROLACTIN GENES All GH, prolactin and PL genes follow the pattern of organization shown for hGH in Fig. 1 (DeNoto et al. 1981). Each gene encodes a mature protein of approximately 200 amino acids, preceded by a signal peptide of about 25 amino acids. The 5 exons or coding sequences, designated I-V, are interrupted by 4 introns designated A-D. Exon/intron boundaries occur at equivalent sites with respect to amino acid codqns. In hGH, exon I contains 60 nucleotides of 5' untranslated sequences, codons -26 to -24 of the signal peptide, and the first nucleotide of codon -23.

In contrast, three plasmids containing much shorter rGH promoter fragments, pRGH309, pRGH237, and pRGH183 (containing rGHfragments of 309, 237 and 183 base pairs (bp) respectively), directed significant levels of CAT expression in fibroblast and kidney cells as well as in pituitary cells. The lost of specificity is most striking forpRGH237, which directs over 100 times more CAT expression than pRGH1753 in fibroblasts, and over 700 times in CV-1 cells. The large relative increase in CAT expression directed by.
