We have characterized a novel human gene, FSD1, on chromosome 19. FSD1 has a BBC, FN3 and SPRY domain, it is distantly related to the midline 1 gene and is expressed only in the brain. We have established its exon-intron structure and we have identified the corresponding orthologous genes in other species. In addition, the identification of FSD1 has led us to identify a homologous counterpart sequence on chromosome 9.
