Disease relevance of Petromyzon


High impact information on Petromyzon

  • In addition, a PU.1-like gene has been identified in a jawless vertebrate, Petromyzon marinus (sea lamprey) [2].
  • Toward this end, we have cloned Dlx genes from the lamprey Petromyzon marinus, an agnathan vertebrate that occupies a critical phylogenetic position between cephalochordates and gnathostomes [3].
  • Petromyzonol sulfate and its derivatives: the chemoattractants of the sea lamprey [4].
  • An Ikaros-related gene has been identified in Petromyzon marinus (sea lamprey), a jawless vertebrate species, in which neither Ig nor TCRs have been identified [5].
  • A full-length transcript encoding a functional type II GnRH receptor was cloned from the pituitary of the sea lamprey, Petromyzon marinus [6].
