Growth hormone plays important roles in various physiological processes such as growth, metabolism, and reproduction. In this study, two cDNAs encoding growth hormone receptor (GHR) were isolated from the liver of zanzibar tilapia (Oreochromis hornornum). The two cDNAs were 2,831 and 2,044 bp in length and named GHR1 and GHR2, respectively. GHR1 and GHR2 shared 57.4% similarity in nucleotide sequences and 33.5% similarity in deduced amino acid sequences. Consequently, it was presumed that they… CONTINUE READING
