Sequence analysis of the porcine IFNAR1 and IFNGR2 genes.

A porcine BAC clone harboring the tightly linked IFNAR1 and IFNGR2 genes was identified by comparative analysis of the publicly available porcine BAC end sequences. The complete 168,835 bp insert sequence of this clone was determined. Sequence comparisons of the genomic sequence with EST sequences from public databases were performed and allowed a detailed annotation of the IFNAR1 and IFNGR2 genes. The analyzed genes showed a conserved genomic organization with their known mammalian orthologs, however the sequence conservation of these genes across species was relatively low. In addition to the IFNAR1 and IFNGR2 genes, which were completely sequenced, the analyzed BAC clone also contained parts of an orphan gene encoding a putative transmembrane protein (TMEM50B). In contrast to the IFNAR1 and IFNGR2 genes the sequence conservation of the TMEM50B gene across different mammalian species was extremely high.[1]
