Ecdysone inducible gene, E75 is a primary target of ecdysone receptor (EcR), and is found to play a critical role in the molting process of arthropods. In this study, a cDNA encoding the E75 of Chinese shrimp Fenneropenaeus chinensis (FcE75) was cloned using RT-PCR and RACE techniques. FcE75 cDNA was 3611bp in length with an ORF of 2394bp. The deduced amino acid sequence of FcE75 had the highest sequence identity to E75 from a land crab Gecarcinus lateralis and E75 of the shrimp Metapenaeus… CONTINUE READING
