The enzymatic activities of α-amylase and its corresponding messenger RNA levels in developing sea bass (Lates calcarifer) larvae were studied from hatching until 27 days post hatching (dph). An increasing activity of amylase enzyme was measured until 5 dph, and the activity gradually decreased thereafter and reached a constant level by 12 dph. To achieve a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms underlying amylase expression, we have cloned and sequenced a 318-bp fragment of α-amylase… CONTINUE READING
