We studied structural peculiarities of 123 human genes which were previously identified as genes of early response to exercise stress. Compared to protein-coding genes in general, their structure revealed some peculiarities: they are shorter in both coding and non-coding regions and contain fewer introns. This result is in good agreement with the similar results reported for stress-responding genes in other species (yeasts, thale cress, and mice).
