Follistatin is a secreted glycoprotein, which involved in numerous physiological activities as an antagonist of the transforming growth factor-β superfamily. However, little is known about the regulation mechanism of follistatin in fish. In this study we cloned and analyzed part of the 5' flanking region of the follistatin gene in Larimichthys crocea. Sequence analysis revealed several putative binding sites for transcription factors including activator protein 1 (AP1), myogenic differentiation… CONTINUE READING
