Cloning of a full-length insulin-like growth factor-I complementary DNA in the goldfish liver and ovary and development of a quantitative PCR method for its measurement.

Abstract

Five forms of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) complementary DNA (cDNA) were isolated by PCR from goldfish liver and ovary, using primers based on common carp IGF-I sequence. In the goldfish liver, we cloned and sequenced three IGF-I forms (1,2, and 3), and elucidated the full-length cDNA sequence using the 5'-and 3'-RACE. Two IGF-I forms (1 and 2) were… (More)
