Gonadotrophin-inhibitory hormone (GnIH) plays an important role in regulating of reproduction in teleosts. To clarify the mode of action of GnIH on the synthesis of gonadotropin releasing hormone (GnRH) and gonadotrophin (GtH), three GnIHR cDNAs were cloned from the goldfish brain. In situ hybridization results showed that GnIHRs were localized to the(More)
We have studied the mitogenic, motogenic and morphogenic effects of hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), also known as scatter factor (SF), on 15 non-small-cell lung carcinoma (NSCLC) cell lines that have had their ras genotype determined. HGF/SF stimulated proliferation in only three cell lines and exerted no mitogenic activity on six lines. The growth of the(More)
MicroRNAs are endogenous, small non-coding RNAs approximately 18-26 nucleotides in length that regulate target gene expression at the post-transcription level. Interferon-γ (IFN-γ) is a Th1 cytokine that is involved in both the innate and adaptive immune responses. We previously identified two IFN-γ genes in green-spotted puffer fish (Tetraodon(More)
