Tetraodon nigroviridis is a freshwater puffer fish with the smallest known vertebrate genome. Here, we report a draft genome sequence with long-range linkage and substantial anchoring to the 21 Tetraodon chromosomes. Genome analysis provides a greatly improved fish gene catalogue, including identifying key genes previously thought to be absent in fish.(More)
By searching a database of expressed sequences, we identified a member of the signal transducers and activators of transcription (Stat) family of proteins. Human and murine full-length cDNA clones were obtained and sequenced. The sequence of the human cDNA was identical to the recently published sequence for interleukin-4 (IL-4)-Stat (J. Hou, U. Schindler,(More)
The basic/leucine zipper (bZip) transcription factor, CREB, binds to the CRE element (TGANNTCA). The transcriptional activity of CREB requires phosphorylation of the protein on a serine residue at position 119 (ref. 6). CREs are present in a number of T-cell genes but the precise role of CREB in T-cell differentiation and function was unknown. Here we show(More)
We report a draft genome sequence of Rhodococcus ruber IEGM 231, isolated from a water spring near an oil-extracting enterprise (Perm region, Russian Federation). This sequence provides important insights into the genetic mechanisms of propane and n-butane metabolism, organic sulfide and beta-sitosterol biotransformation, glycolipid biosurfactant(More)
