Background: Members of the Maf family, including L‐Maf, MafB and c‐Maf, are ‘basic region/leucine zipper’ (bZIP) transcription… Expand Pax6 is a key transcription factor in eye development, particularly in lens development, but its molecular action has not been… Expand Activation of the first lens-specific gene of the chicken, delta 1-crystallin, is dependent on a group of lens nuclear factors… Expand The abundance of delta-crystallin in the chicken eye lens provides an advantageous marker for tissue-specific gene expression… Expand The repressor delta EF1 was discovered by its action on the DC5 fragment of the lens-specific delta 1-crystallin enhancer. C… Expand The major soluble protein in the lenses of most birds and reptiles is delta-crystallin. In chickens and ducks the delta… Expand The lens structural protein delta-crystallin and the metabolic enzyme argininosuccinate lyase (ASL; L-argininosuccinate arginine… Expand Crystallins, the principal components of the lens, have been regarded simply as soluble, structural proteins. It now appears that… Expand To produce a model of transgenic fish, recombinant plasmids containing chicken delta-crystallin gene were microinjected into the… Expand Embryonic chick cells of the presumptive lens ectoderm are induced to differentiate into a lens by the optic vesicle, an… Expand
