The function and the regulation of the expression of the extracellular matrix molecule tenascin-C during embryonic development are still unclear. In the present study, the expression of tenascin-C was analyzed in the trunk of zebrafish at the end of the first embryonic day. An antiserum raised against a zebrafish tenascin-C (TN-C) fusion protein reacted with 220 (doublet), 200, and 160 KD peptides. In situ hybridization showed that in the zebrafish wild-type embryo, tn-c mRNA was expressed by… CONTINUE READING
