The nucleotide sequence of the gene of human ribosomal protein S26 has been assembled from cDNA and genomic PCR-amplified DNA fragments, and its transcription start site has been determined by primer extension. The gene is composed of four exons and three introns spanning 2027bp. Like other ribosomal protein genes of vertebrates, this gene contains a short first exon corresponding exactly to the short untranslated 5'- UTR. Its transcription start site is embedded in a polypyrimidine tract. Using PCR on DNAs from hybrid cell lines with a different set of human chromosomes, the intron-containing gene of ribosomal protein S26 was mapped to human chromosome 12.
