I am looking for exemples of genes whose introns/exons organization is known
in several species (in vertebrates), for which in one species the gene doesn't
contain any intron but is functionally transcribed.

thanks in advance >>
You might try searching for pseudogenes where it is thought that RNA was
reverse transcribed back to DNA and inserted.  There are a number known but I
don't know if any are functional.
