ARNT2 is not required for TCDD developmental toxicity in zebrafish.

ZfAHR2 has been identified as the receptor that is essential for mediating the developmental toxicity caused by 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzo-p-dioxin (TCDD) in zebrafish. One form of zfARNT2, zfARNT2b, forms a functional heterodimer with zfAHR2 that specifically recognizes XREs in gel shift experiments and induces XRE-driven transcription in COS-7 cells… CONTINUE READING
