Abstract

The putative gene FLJ12960 was identified from sequence analysis of the human genome and predicted to be a member of the family of tRNA-guanine- transglycosylases for queuine biosynthesis by protein sequence similarity at the Zn-binding site (Locus Link #79691 at http://www.ncbi.nlm.gov/LocusLink/). FLJ12960 is immediately downstream of the Dopamine Receptor D3 (DRD3) gene. A Simple Tandem Repeat (STR) polymorphism was identified in intron 8 of the FLJ12960 gene. Primers designed to amplify the CA repeat detect 16 alleles from 121 to 151 base pairs, with a heterozygosity of 0.74.
