    You can use the first one in your list, NM_000130.4. That is the accession number for the factor V DNA that encodes for the mRNA only. What this means is that this is not the entire gene sequence but only those parts of the gene that remain in the translated mRNA, the introns have been removed. When you scroll down through the list you will see a number of links for "exon", the DNA sequence ranges it provides are where each exon is located. If you are designing primers, you will likely want to stay within the exon of your sequence change (the exon that 1691 is contained in). If ...
