We have detected an expressed mRNA encoding a splice variant of COX-1 in the mouse central nervous system. This isoform, referred to as COX-3, is identical in sequence to COX-1 except for the in-frame retention of intron 1. Like its counterpart COX-1, COX-3 does not generally appear to be induced by acute inflammatory stimulation.
