The mechanisms involved in the transcriptional regulation of the rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) growth hormone (tGH) gene have been investigated. Transient transfection assays, using deletion mutants of the tGH promoter, demonstrated that the -226/+24 5'-flanking region, bearing three binding sites for the pituitary-specific transcription factor GHF1… CONTINUE READING
