Expression patterns of the creatine metabolism-related molecules AGAT, GAMT and CT1 in adult zebrafish Danio rerio
Abstract:AGAT, GAMT and CT1, three creatine synthesis and transport-related molecules, have been widely studied in mammals. To explore their homologous genes in adult zebrafish Danio rerio, the gene expression patterns of these three genes in D. rerio were investigated. The results reveal that AGAT, GAMT and CT1 are expressed widely in diverse tissues of D. rerio where the homologous genes in mammals are also expressed.
