Unformatted text preview: 40. There is a single gene encoding a protein of 346 amino acids called xenotrophin. The primary transcript contains 9 exons. It has been observed that the xenotrophin protein exists in three forms that differ in the last 15 amino acids. The mRNAs that encode these three forms all come from the same gene yet differ slightly in their size. Scientists are trying to explain these findings.
