Antifreeze proteins of teleost fishes.
Marine teleosts at high latitudes can encounter ice-laden seawater that is approximately 1 degrees C colder than the colligative freezing point of their body fluids. They avoid freezing by producing… Expand

ABSTRACT Here we report the complete genome sequence of Singapore grouper iridovirus (SGIV). Sequencing of the random shotgun and restriction endonuclease genomic libraries showed that the entire… Expand
Chitinase genes responsive to cold encode antifreeze proteins in winter cereals.
Antifreeze proteins similar to two different chitinases accumulate during cold acclimation in winter rye (Secale cereale). To determine whether these cold-responsive chitinases require… Expand
Biochemistry of fish antifreeze proteins
Four distinct macromolecular antifreezes have been isolated and characterized from different marine fish. These include the glycoprotein antifreezes (Mr 2.5‐33 K), which are made up of a repeating… Expand
Growth Enhancement in Transgenic Atlantic Salmon by the Use of an “All Fish” Chimeric Growth Hormone Gene Construct
We have developed an “all fish” growth hormone (GH) chimeric gene construct by using an antifreeze protein gene (AFP) promoter from ocean pout linked to a chinook salmon GH cDNA clone. After… Expand
Production of germline transgenic Pacific salmonids with dramatically increased growth performance
Transgenic Pacific salmon have been produced by microinjection of a DNA construct consisting of chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) growth hormone sequences driven by an ocean pout… Expand
Genomic structure of growth hormone genes in chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha): presence of two functional genes, GH-I and GH-II, and a male-specific pseudogene, GH-psi.
Two chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha) growth hormone genes (a functional GH-I gene and a pseudogene, GH-psi) were isolated and characterized. The GH-I gene sequence consists of 1.9 kb of… Expand
Faithful expression of green fluorescent protein (GFP) in transgenic zebrafish embryos under control of zebrafish gene promoters.
Although the zebrafish has become a popular model organism for vertebrate developmental and genetic analyses, its use in transgenic studies still suffers from the scarcity of homologous gene… Expand
Transmission and phenotypic effects of an antifreeze/GH gene construct in coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch)
Abstract Transmission of the opAFPGHc gene construct from parental transgenic coho salmon to F 1 progeny has been observed. Just prior to first feeding, these offspring were found to fall into two… Expand
Crystal Structures of Major Envelope Proteins VP26 and VP28 from White Spot Syndrome Virus Shed Light on Their Evolutionary Relationship
ABSTRACT White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) is a virulent pathogen known to infect various crustaceans. It has bacilliform morphology with a tail-like appendage at one end. The envelope consists of… Expand
