Transcriptional Regulation of the Chicken ASMT Gene- A Preliminary AnalysisJun Teng, Dan Wang, Wenwen Wang, Chao Ning, Qin Zhang & Hui Tang
1. Melatonin is an indole hormone that, among its myriad biological functions, regulates circadian and seasonal rhythms in animals. The ASMT gene plays an essential role in melatonin synthesis. However, in chickens, little is known about the regulatory elements governing its transcription. 2. The following study identified the transcription start site of the chicken ASMT gene by 5’-RACE. Then, the proximal minimal promoter was identified using a series of 5′ truncations of the ASMT promoter...
