Title (EN) CHIMERIC GENE CONSTRUCTS FOR GENERATION OF FLUORESCENT TRANSGENIC ORNAMENTAL FISH
(FR) CONSTRUCTIONS GENIQUES PERMETTANT DE PRODUIRE UN POISSON D'AGREMENT TRANSGENIQUE FLUORESCENT
Abstract: front page image
(EN)Four zebrafish gene promoters, which are skin specific, muscle specific, skeletal muscle specific and ubiquitously expressed respectively, were isolated and ligated to the 5' end of the EGFP gene. When the resulting chimeric gene constructs were introduced into zebrafish, the transgenic zebrafish emit green fluorescence under a blue light or ultraviolet light according to the specificity of the promoters used. Thus, new varieties of ornamental fish of different fluorescence patterns, e.g., skin fluorescence, muscle fluorescence, skeletal muscle-specific and/or ubiquitous fluorescence, are developed.
(FR)L'invention concerne quatre promoteurs géniques du poisson zèbre, spécifiques de la peau, des muscles, et des muscles du squelette, exprimés respectivement de manière ubiquiste, isolés et formant une ligature avec l'extrémité 5' du gène de la protéine fluorescente verte améliorée (EGFP). Lorsque les constructions géniques chimères résultantes sont introduites dans le poisson zèbre, le poisson zèbre transgénique émet une fluorescence verte en réponse à une lumière bleue ou ultraviolette, en fonction de la spécificité des promoteurs utilisés. Puis, on développe de nouvelles variétés de poissons d'agrément présentant différents motifs fluorescents, par exemple la fluorescence de la peau, des muscles, et la fluorescence spécifique d'un muscle du squelette et/ou ubiquiste.
