A partial cDNA encoding cytosolic aspartate aminotransferase (AST) (EC 2.6.1.1) was isolated from a Crassostrea gigas digestive gland library. This sequence was used to design specific primers to amplify the AST genomic sequence. We obtained a complete gene, 5054 bp in length, encoding cytosolic AST and containing a 404 amino acid open reading frame… CONTINUE READING
