The primary structure of human glutathione reductase gene (GSR) was determined by genomic cloning. The gene structure of human GSR spans 50 kb, consists of 13 exons, and was found to be highly similar to the mouse GSR gene. The coding sequence of human GSR resides on all 13 exons. An N-terminal arginine-rich mitochondrial leader sequence was present, with high homology to the murine leader sequence, between two in-frame start codons in the first exon. The 5' and 3' intron/exon splice junctions, with one exception, followed the general consensus sequences for intron spliced donor and acceptance sites.
