Structure of the rainbow trout metallothionein A gene

Please always quote using this URN: urn:nbn:de:bvb:20-opus-61679
  • To investigate the regulation of metallothionein-encoding genes in fish, we have isolated and sequenced the rainbow trout metallothionein-A-encoding gene (tMT-A) by polymerase chain reaction. This gene spans about 1.1 kb, consists of three exons and two introns, and has an A+ T-rieb 5' -region which contains a TATAAA signal, and two metal responsive elements (MREs). The transcription start point is centered around an A residue 81 nt upstream of the ATG codon.
