Generation of Aberrant Transcripts of and Free DNA Ends in Zebrafish no tail Gene


The zebrafish no tail gene (ntl) is indispensable for the formation of the notochord and the tail structure. In a wild-type zebrafish population, we occasionally observed adult zebrafish with a narrow or no tailfin. This led us to examine the hypothesis that the activity of ntl was somehow genetically unstable. Here we present two findings regarding the… (More)
