Well Martin, if you really want to get small...
If memory serves, the murine C5-anaphylatoxin receptor is comprised of two
exons. Exon one contains only the 5' flanking sequence and the initiation
ATG - that's it. The rest of the coding (ORF) is on exon 2 which is 7 kb
downstream. Perhaps this "takes the cake" for the smallest exon, 3 bp!
