Interferon gamma (IFN-gamma), the only member of the type II class of interferons, has been identified in teleost fish. In addition to the IFN-gamma gene, fish possess an IFN-gamma related gene (IFN-gammarel) neighbouring the authentic IFN-gamma gene in the genome. In the present study, the cDNA sequence encoding 167 amino acids of IFN-gammarel and its genomic organization were identified in grass carp Ctenopharyngodon idella. The predicted protein sequence of grass carp IFN-gammarel (gcIFN… CONTINUE READING
