Cloning and sequence analysis of the candidate nicotinic acetylcholine receptor alpha subunit gene tar-1 from Trichostrongylus colubriformis.


A T. colubriformis genomic library in lambda EMBL3 was screened for sequences homologous to the Caenorhabditis elegans unc-38 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) alpha-subunit gene. The candidate gene tar-1 (for Trichostrongylus acetylcholine receptor subunit gene 1) comprising 13704 base pairs was thus identified. BLAST comparison of the sequenced… (More)
