In duck the single copy lactate dehydrogenase B (LDH-B) gene also encodes an abundant lens protein, epsilon-crystallin. The LDH-B/epsilon-crystallin gene consists of eight exons, of which the first is non-coding. The promoter region lacks a TATA box, is very GC-rich and contains multiple consensus Sp1 binding sites. The gene has two discrete transcription… CONTINUE READING
