maf is a family of oncogenes originally identified from avian oncogenic retrovirus, AS42, encoding a nuclear bZip transcription factor. We have isolated two maf related cDNA clones, maf-1 and maf-2, from a rat liver cDNA library. Comparison of the sequence homologies of the proteins encoded by maf-1 and maf-2 with those of c-maf and chicken mafB indicated that maf-1 and maf-2 are the rat homologues of mafB and c-maf, respectively. Both genes are expressed at low levels in a wide variety of rat… CONTINUE READING

Immunohistochemical studies and in situ hybridization analyses show that maf-1 and maf-2 are strongly expressed in the late stages of chondrocyte development in the femur epiphysis and the rib and limb cartilage of 15 day old ( E15 ) embryo in rat .
