Primary structure of human pancreatic secretory trypsin inhibitor (PSTI) gene

Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 1987 Dec 16;149(2):635-41. doi: 10.1016/0006-291x(87)90415-3.


The human pancreatic secretory trypsin inhibitor (PSTI) gene was isolated from a human gene library. Restriction endonuclease mapping and DNA sequencing analysis revealed that this gene is approximately 7.5 kb long and is separated into four exons by three introns. The gene has multiple transcription start points and examination with a single-laser cell-sorter showed that it is located on chromosome 5.
