Molecular cloning and functional characterization of bottlenose dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) tumor necrosis factor alpha.

Abstract

Bottlenose dolphin tumor necrosis factor alpha (doTNF-alpha) cDNA was cloned by reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) and the nucleic and deduced amino acid sequences were determined. The sequence of the cDNA clones shows that doTNF-alpha has an open reading frame of 699bp encoding 233 amino acids. The nucleic acid sequence of doTNF-alpha… (More)
