Abstract

Mx proteins are antiviral GTPases, which are induced by type I IFN and virus infection. Analysis of the Atlantic salmon genome revealed the presence of 9 Mx genes localized to three chromosomes. A cluster of three Mx genes (SsaMx1-SsaMx3), which includes previously cloned Mx genes, is present on...

Abstract

The Senegalese sole (Solea senegalensis) is commercially very important and a priority species for aquaculture product diversification. The main histone cluster was identified within two BAC clones. However, two replacement histones (H1.0 and H3.3) were found in another BAC clone. Different types...

Abstract

A genetic linkage map is a powerful research tool for mapping traits of interest and is essential to understanding genome evolution. The aim of this study is to provide an expanded genetic linkage map of common carp to effectively carry out quantitative trait loci analysis and conduct comparative...

Abstract

In the present study, we have annotated both the immunoglobulin heavy (IgH) and light (IgL) chain genes in the stickleback (Gasterosteus aculeatus), based on the recently released genome data. The IgH gene locus is arranged in a configuration of (Vn-D-J-Cζ-D3-J4-Cμ-Cδ)3-V6-D-J-Cζ, which is...

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

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: Interferon regulatory factors (IRFs), which can be identified based on a unique helix-turn-helix DNA-binding domain (DBD) are a large family of transcription factors involved in host immune response, haemotopoietic differentiation and immunomodulation. Despite the identification of 10...

Abstract

The impact of the genome sequence for fish species for which it is already available is reviewed. How the combination of genomics with more traditional disciplines may pave the way for a wider impact on biology is examined. The use of fish genomic sequence as a model of other vertebrate genomes is...

Abstract

Because the zebrafish lineage is basally diverging among Euteleost fish, analysis of its genome can complement information from other key species to understand the origin of genomes of teleost fish, the most species-rich group of vertebrates, and to infer some history of the human genome. Analysis...

Abstract

The cytokine Macrophage Stimulating 1 (MST1/MSP/Hepatocyte Growth Factor-Like) is a ligand of the Met-related MST1-Receptor (MST1R/RON). Although MST1-deficient mice are viable, MST1R is essential in mice before gastrulation for implantation, and is a known oncogene in man. Here I report the...
