Molecular cloning and characterization of a metal responsive Chironomus tentans alpha-tubulin cDNA.


Metal pollution of aquatic ecosystems is a problem of economic and health importance. Sensitive molecular biomarkers of metal exposure are sorely needed. We have isolated a cDNA from the midge Chironomus tentans that is transcribed in all organs and developmental stages. The cDNA encodes a protein, designated Chironomus tentans alpha-tubulin 1 (CTTUB1… (More)
