Gene context of Mesocricetus

  • Here we describe circadian oscillations of Per1 and Per2 in the SCN of the Syrian hamster, showing that PER1 protein and mRNA cycles again behave in a manner consistent with a negative-feedback oscillator [34].
  • We have identified a nonsense mutation in the Mitf gene of the anophthalmic white Wh) Syrian hamster that destabilizes its mRNA and prevents the encoded basic helix-loop-helix leucine zipper (bHLHzip) protein from dimerizing or binding DNA target sites [35].
  • We tested this hypothesis in Bio. 82.73/H Syrian hamster lines which are congenic at the NAT2 gene locus [36].
  • We quantitatively compared the cell-transforming activity of BP-A and 4 of its analogs (BP-2, BP-3, BP-4 and BP-5) in Syrian hamster embryo (SHE) cells lacking estrogen-receptor expression [37].
  • Prostate expression of N-acetyltransferase 1 (NAT1) and 2 (NAT2) in rapid and slow acetylator congenic Syrian hamster [38].
