We have characterized the apolipoprotein multigene family of the pufferfish Takifugu rubripes. The pufferfish mainly contains 28-kDa, 27-kDa, and 14-kDa apolipoproteins in its plasma and was designated apo-28 kDa, apo-27 kDa, and apo-14 kDa, respectively. N-terminal amino acid sequencing revealed that pufferfish apo-28 kDa and apo-27 kDa have an identical(More)
Structural and functional properties were investigated for four peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs), PPARalpha1, PPARalpha2, PPARbeta, and PPARgamma, from torafugu pufferfish Takifugu rubripes and determined for their transcriptional activity by the reporter assay using reporter plasmids containing three copies of the acyl-CoA oxidase PPAR(More)
Three adenine nucleotide translocator (ANT) genes were identified through in silico data mining of the Fugu genome database along with isolation of their corresponding cDNAs in vivo from the pufferfish (Takifugu rubripes). As a result of phylogenetic analysis, the ANT gene on scaffold_254 corresponded to mammalian ANT1, whereas both of those on scaffold_6(More)
Medaka Oryzias latipes peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) α1, α2, β, and γ were characterized for their sequence structures and transcriptional activities. While the genes encoding PPARα2, β, and γ were determined for their full length, the PPARα1 gene remained undetermined for its 5′-end region, which encodes the DNA-binding domain and a(More)
