The genomic structure of an androgen-stimulated mouse seminal vesicle autoantigen was determined. Analysis of the nucleotide sequence established 2135 bp of the 5'-flanking region, four exons of 123, 136, 112, 227 bp, three introns of 1555, 1931, 316 bp, and 185 bp of the 3'-flanking region of this gene. Ten DNA segments, five in the 5'-flanking region, two in the first intron, and three in the second intron were identified to have more than 50% homology with the consensus sequence of the androgen response element (ARE). Two sets of adjacent DNA segments, one including -213 to -199 bp and -124 to -110 bp in the 5'-flanking region and the other including 2532 to 2546 bp and 2582 to 2596 bp in the second intron, are noticeable for their high degree of homology with ARE.
