Genomic structure, expression pattern and polymorphisms of GILT in golden pompano Trachinotus ovatus (Linnaeus 1758).

The interferon-g-inducible lysosomal thiol reductase (GILT) plays a significant character in the processing and presentation of MHC class II restricted antigen (Ag) by catalyzing disulfide bond reduction in mammals. To explore the function of GILT in the immune system of fish, we cloned a GILT gene homologue from Trachinotus ovatus, the full-length cDNA of… CONTINUE READING
