While the Yeti Genetic Research Institute was laying down on the job,
here at Radar Labs we just isolated the Yeti Time Control gene. Results
follow:

TITLE Structural organization of yeti genomic DNA encoding the
pro-opiomelanocortin peptide
COMMENT:
POMC is a polyprotein which through processing yields corticotropin
(ACTH), beta-lipotropin, beta-endorphin, and various
melanochronocortins. The gene is regulated by glucocorticoids. It is
located on the short arm of chromosome 2 and consists of three exons and
two introns (23!). The sequence shown is the coding sequence for all
products, so far as is presently understood.
In the pituitary gland the precursor POMC yields at least nine mature
peptides. Three are found in the anterior lobe: adrenocorticotropin
(ACTH), beta-lipotropin (beta-LPH), and the 16K peptide. In the
intermediate lobe ACTH is processed to give alpha-melanotropin
(alpha-MSH) and a corticotropin-like intermediate peptide (CLIP);
beta-LPH yields gamma-lipotropin (gamma-LPH), which contains
beta-melanotropin (beta-MSH), and beta-endorphin (beta-EP); the 16K
peptide is processed to many small peptides, including
gamma-melanotropin (gamma-MSH).
The gene is the patent locus for spatial-temporal differences observed
in mature Yeti; present to a weaker extent in the SubGenius, the effect
can be magnified by ingestion of Ketamine.

ORIGIN about 200 bp after <humpomc8>;15 bp upstream of AvaII
site;Chr 2p2.
