Many motifs along the 1.2 kb myostatin promoter (MSTNpro) in sheep have been found by the MatInspecter program in our recent study. To further verify the role of the motifs and better understand the transcriptional regulation mechanism of the myostatin gene in sheep, the reporter gene EGFP (enhanced green fluorescent protein) was selected and the wild-type (W) vector MSTNPro(W)-EGFP or motif-mutational (M) vector MSTNPro(M)-EGFP were constructed. The transcriptional regulation activities were… CONTINUE READING
