We have isolated a POU domain-containing cDNA (ZFPOU1) from a cDNA library of zebrafish (Brachydanio rerio). The ZFPOU1 cDNA contained an open reading frame encoding a 425 amino acid peptide. The conserved POU domain was located near the carboxy terminus. The deduced amino acid sequence of the reading frame was most similar to that of the mouse class III(More)
BACKGROUND The developing vertebrate nervous system displays a pronounced anterior-posterior (A-P) pattern, but the mechanism that generates this pattern is poorly understood. We examined through cell-transplantation experiments, when and how the cells in the zebrafish posterior midbrain acquire regional specificity along the A-P axis as shown by pax[b](More)
Interaction of cytokines with their membrane receptors induces the proliferation and differentiation of a specific lineage of haematopoietic progenitors. The molecular mechanism of cytokine receptor-mediated signal transduction is unclear because these receptors do not have tyrosine kinase activity. Interleukin-3 and erythropoietin, however, induce(More)
A Mus dunni tail fibroblast (MDTF) cell line is highly resistant to infection by ecotropic Moloney murine leukemia virus (Mo-MLV). The cationic amino acid transporter type 1 (CAT1) paralogues of murine NIH 3T3 and MDTF cells (mCAT1 and dCAT1, respectively) contain two conserved N-linked glycosylation sites in the third extracellular loop (ECL3, the putative(More)
