Characterization of TCR ß-chain Locus genotypes of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchusmykiss) by SSCP analysis

  title={Characterization of TCR {\ss}-chain Locus genotypes of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchusmykiss) by SSCP analysis},
  author={Amir Vaisi and Peyman Pejmanmehr},
T cells play important regulatory roles in the immune responses of jawed vertebrates. In the present study T cell receptor (TCR) coding genes of the Rainbow trout (Oncorhynchusmykiss) as a main aquaculture species of Iranian cold waters was analyzed. So five farms of this species were selected in Harazriver and 50 fin sampleswere collected and screened for TCR s chain locus with the single strand conformation analysis method. Results of this research indicated limited alleles number (3-6… Expand

Structure and diversity of the T cell antigen receptor beta-chain in a teleost fish.
Cell-mediated immunity (e.g., allograft rejection) is found in all vertebrates, and these reactions are known to depend on thymus-derived cells in amphibian, avian, and mammalian species. TheExpand
The Four TCR Genes of Teleost Fish: The cDNA and Genomic DNA Analysis of Japanese Flounder (Paralichthys olivaceus) TCR α-, β-, γ-, and δ-Chains1
The isolated and identified TCR α, β, γ, and δ cDNAs and genomic clones from a Japanese flounder leukocyte cDNA library and bacterial artificial chromosomal genomic library suggest that theFlounder possesses very unique genomic DNA organization and gene loci for TCR, Cα/Cδ1, and Cγ/C δ2. Expand
Characterization of the Japanese pufferfish (Takifugu rubripes) T-cell receptor α locus reveals a unique genomic organization
Abstract. Polymerase chain reactions with degenerate V gene segment primers were used to isolate the putative T-cell receptor α-chain gene (TCRA) from Japanese pufferfish (Takifugu rubripes). TheExpand
α, β, γ, and δ T Cell Antigen Receptor Genes Arose Early in Vertebrate Phylogeny
Abstract A series of products were amplified using a PCR strategy based on short minimally degenerate primers and R. eglanteria (clearnose skate) spleen cDNA as template. These products were used asExpand
The T cell receptor β genes of Xenopus
cDNA of the T cell receptor β have been isolated from the anuran amphibian Xenopus and they show strong structural homology to TCRB sequences of other vertebrates, suggesting that the mechanism of rearrangements are identical to those of mammals. Expand
Genomic organization of the TcR β-chain diversity (Dβ) and joining (Jβ) segments in the rainbow trout: Presence of many repeated sequences
Knowing of the germline boundaries of the trout Dβ and Jβ ends makes it possible to evaluate precisely the exonuclease activity and N-nucleotide addition at the Dβ−Jβ junctions of the rearranged TcRβ chain genes. Expand
Identification of a T3/T cell receptor complex in chickens
Ontogeny studies revealed that 5-6 d after thymic influx of hemopoietic stem cells, their thymocyte progeny begin to express the T3/TCR complex, and after hatching 1 wk later, the CT- 3+ cells begin splenic migration in large numbers. Expand
