Isolation of c‐myc genes from goldfish and their tissue specific expression
Abstract:One novel cellular myc gene (c‐myc), GM1, was isolated from a tetraploid cyprinid, the goldfish Carassius auratus. GM1 consisted of one non‐coding exon and two coding exons, presumably encoding a protein of 390 amino acid (aa) residues. The aa identity between GM1 and GM2, another c‐myc previously isolated from this species, was 88·8%. Quantitative RT‐PCR analysis revealed that GM1 was specifically expressed in liver and GM2 in ovary.
