Using the rat anti-müllerian hormone type II receptor (AMHRII) cDNA as a probe, two overlapping lambda phage clones containing the AMHRII gene were isolated from a human genomic library. Sequence analysis of the exons was performed and the exon/intron boundaries were determined. The coding region was found to consist of 11 exons, divided over 8 kb. The genomic structure resembles that of the related activin type II receptor gene. The AMHRII gene was mapped to human chromosome 12q12-q13. The results reported are essential for identification of AMHRII gene alterations in patients with persistent müllerian duct syndrome.
