In this study, we cloned zebrafish (Danio rerio) IGF-1 cDNA and gene from zebrafish brain cDNA library and adult zebrafish genomic library, respectively. Based on two cDNAs sequence with different length of 5'- and 3'-untranslated region (5UTR and 3UTR) and one nucleotide difference at glutamine (A9, CAG) of A domain represented at IGF-1 sequence. One of zebrafish IGF-1 genes named as IGF-1a gene. The zebrafish IGF-1a gene spanned approximately 15 kb and is divided into five exons. The results… CONTINUE READING
