TGFbeta3, a member of the transforming growth factor beta family, regulates a spectrum of biological processes and is involved in mammalian pulmonary and craniofacial development. Homologs of human TGFbeta3 have been identified in several vertebrate species. We sequenced a cDNA clone of zebrafish tgfbeta3, consisting of a 271-bp 5' untranslated region, a 1,233-bp open reading frame that encodes a predicted 410 amino acid peptide, and a 527-bp 3' untranslated region. Using 5' rapid amplification… CONTINUE READING
