Simple sequence repeats (SSRs) are becoming a choice of markers in fish genetic research due to their abundance in the genome, co-dominant nature, high polymorphism and ability to reproduce. Thus, in this review, we have discussed regarding SSRs markers developed in fishes using different techniques. These markers have been used for revealing genetic(More)
Recent advances in gene editing techniques have not been exploited in farmed fishes. We established a gene targeting technique, using the CRISPR/Cas9 system in Labeo rohita, a farmed carp (known as rohu). We demonstrated that donor DNA was integrated via homologous recombination (HR) at the site of targeted double-stranded nicks created by CRISPR/Cas9(More)
Because little is known about the function of Sox2 (Sry-related box-2) in teleosts, the objective of this study was to clone and characterize Sox2 complementary DNA (cDNA) from the testis of Indian major carp, Labeo rohita (rohu). The full-length cDNA contained an open reading frame of 936 nucleotides bearing the typical structural features.(More)
Toll-like receptor 22 (TLR22) is present in teleost but not in mammals. Among Indian farmed carps, Catla catla is relatively more resistant than Labeo rohita to Argulus siamensis lice infection. TLR22 is believed to be associated with innate immunity against ectoparasite infection. To investigate the TLR22 mediated immunity against argulosis, we have cloned(More)
We previously characterized the β-actin gene promoter of Indian domesticated rohu carp (Labeo rohita) and made a reporter construct via fusion to green fluorescence protein (GFP) cDNA. In this study, the same construct was used to breed transgenic rohu fish. About 20% of the transgenic offspring showed ubiquitous expression of the reporter GFP gene. In a(More)
The myostatin (MSTN) is a known negative growth regulator of skeletal muscle. The mutated myostatin showed a double-muscular phenotype having a positive significance for the farmed animals. Consequently, adequate information is not available in the teleosts, including farmed rohu carp, Labeo rohita. In the absence of experimental evidence, computational(More)
Immune response mediated by toll-like receptor 22 (TLR22), only found in teleost/amphibians, is triggered by double-stranded RNA binding to its LRR (leucine-rich repeats) ecto-domain. Accumulated evidences suggested that missense mutations in TLR genes affect its function. However, information on mutation linked pathogen recognition for TLR22 was lacking.(More)
Advancements in the DNA sequencing technologies and computational biology have revolutionized genome/transcriptome sequencing of non-model fishes at an affordable cost. This has led to a paradigm shift with regard to our heightened understandings of structure-functional relationships of genes at a global level, from model animals/fishes to non-model large(More)
The high-throughput sequencing technology provides a platform for revealing the expressed genes within a tissue at a specific time. The giant freshwater prawn, Macrobrachium rosenbergii, is an economically important species, which is surviving in a wide-range of salinity. In this study, to understand the physiological mechanism of adaptability with respect(More)
