Two types of cDNA clones encoding thyroid hormone receptor (TR) genes, TRalpha and TRbeta, were isolated from the coho salmon Oncorhynchus kisutch. The two genes each consists of multiple isoforms, derived from different loci or by an alternative splicing. RT-PCR revealed a broad localization of the TRalpha and TRbeta transcripts that both expressed in brain, gill, liver, muscle, kidney, ovary, skin and eyeball. During the early stages of the smoltification period, the mRNA level of the TR… CONTINUE READING
