  • Analysis of lysozyme gene expression in chicken and mouse identified two evolutionarily different mechanisms of lysozyme gene regulation. The lysozyme gene in chicken is expressed in the oviduct and macrophage cells with expression regulated by different, partially overlapping sets of tissue specific cis-acting elements. In contrast to chicken, the mouse genome contains two lysozyme genes generated by a gene duplication event allowing each gene to be regulated by its own regulatory region. One… CONTINUE READING
