Here, we report isolation and developmental expression pattern of the zebrafish lysozyme C gene. Amino acid sequence analysis showed that the zebrafish lysozyme C protein shared approximately 37-80% identities with the mouse, human, chicken, and carp counterparts. Whole-mount in situ hybridization showed that the lysozyme C gene was expressed in macrophages, as its expression was co-localized with the known myeloid lineage markers L-plastin and PU.1. At 20 hours postfertilization (hpf), most of… CONTINUE READING
