Currently, little information is available regarding the molecular organization of integrated transgenes in genetically-engineered fish. We performed a detailed structural analysis of an inserted transgene in one strain (M77) of transgenic coho salmon (Oncorhynchus kisutch) containing a salmon growth hormone gene construct (OnMTGH1). Microinjected DNA was found to have inserted into a single site in the coho salmon genome, and was organized with four complete internal copies and two partial… CONTINUE READING
