Gene structure of the goldfish agouti-signaling protein: A putative role in the dorsal-ventral pigment pattern of fishDownload
One of the most successful chromatic adaptations in vertebrates is the dorsal-ventral pigment pattern in which the dorsal skin is darkly colored, whereas the ventrum is light. In fish, the latter pattern is achieved because a melanization inhibition factor inhibits melanoblast differentiation and...
Molecular cloning, pharmacological characterization and brain mapping of the melanocortin 4 receptor in the goldfish: Involvement in the control of food intakeDownload
We report cloning, pharmacological characterization, tissue distribution, detailed brain mapping, and role in control of food intake of melanocortin 4 receptor in goldfish (gMC4R). The gMC4R protein has 68% identity with the human ortholog and is conserved in important functional domains....
