Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of IMPG2

  • METHODS: After isolation of human genomic clones, the structure of IMPG2 was determined by sequence analysis [1].
  • Additional data derived from RT-PCR and Northern blot analysis show that IMPG2 is processed in the human retina into multiple alternatively sized transcripts that may represent splicing isoforms [1].
