The family of human Na+,K+-ATPase genes. No less than five genes and/or pseudogenes related to the alpha-subunit

FEBS Lett. 1987 Jun 15;217(2):275-8. doi: 10.1016/0014-5793(87)80677-4.


Five different nucleotide sequences have been found in the human genome homologous to the gene of the alpha-subunit of Na+,K+-ATPase. A comparative analysis of the primary structure of these genes in the region 749-1328 (in coordinates of cDNA from the pig alpha-subunit) is presented.
