Abstract

Factor B, a serine proteinase with MW of 95,000, is an important molecule in the activation of the complement system in vertebrates. Factor B and complement component C2 are believed to have arisen through gene duplication. In mammals and Xenopus the factor B gene is linked to the major...

Abstract

Background: Rainbow trout is an economically important fish and a suitable experimental organism in many fields of biology including genome evolution, owing to the occurrence of a salmonid specific whole-genome duplication (4th WGD). Rainbow trout is among some of the most studied teleosts and has...

Abstract

Background: The development of large genomic resources has become a prerequisite to elucidate the wide scale evolution of genomes and the molecular basis of complex traits. Linkage maps represent a first level of integration and utilization of such resources and the primary framework for molecular...

Abstract

A cDNA clone containing the complete coding region for elongation factor-1α (EF-1α) was obtained from an embryonic zebrafish cDNA library and sequenced (EMBL/GenBank accession number X77689). A secondary structure model based on all known EF-1α and EF-Tu protein sequences is presented and the...

Abstract

The amphioxus Branchiostoma belcheri tsingtaunese homolog of p8, Bbp8, was identified from the gut cDNA library. The full-length Bbp8 cDNA consists of 1032 bp, which is clearly longer than those of p8 in human, mouse, rat, frog, zebrafish and fruit fly. The genomic DNA sequences of amphioxus p8...

Abstract

Whole genome duplications (WGDs) are considered to have been a driving force in the generation of evolutionary diversity that is characteristic of higher eukaryotes. The ancestor of salmonids underwent two additional WGDs compared to mammals, one (3R) at the base of the teleost radiation and...

Abstract

CTCF is a nuclear phosphoprotein capable of using different subsets of its 11 Zn fingers (ZF) for sequence-specific binding to many dissimilar DNA CTCF-target sites. Such sites were identified in the genomic DNA of various multicellular organisms, in which the CTCF gene was cloned, including...

Abstract

Aquaporins (Aqps) are a class of water channel proteins that play key roles in many physiological functions and cellular processes. Here, we analyzed 166 putative Aqp genes in 12 fish species and divided them into four groups. Gene organization and motif distribution analyses suggested potentially...

Background & objectives: Comparative genomics and evolutionary analyses of conserved genes have enabled us to understand the complexity of genomes of closely related species. For example: β-globin gene present in human hemoglobin is one such gene that has experienced many genetic changes in...

Abstract

Background: Ichthyophthirius multifiliis, commonly known as Ich, is a highly pathogenic ciliate responsible for "white spot", a disease causing significant economic losses to the global aquaculture industry. Options for disease control are extremely limited, and Ich's obligate parasitic lifestyle...
