Donizetti A, Liccardo D, Esposito D, del Gaudio R, Locascio A, Ferrara D, et al
. Differential expression of duplicated genes for prothymosin alpha during zebrafish development. Dev Dyn. 2008;237:1112-8 pubmed publisher
..The existence of two prothymosin genes indicates that their function in cell proliferation and differentiation is more complex in fishes than in mammals. ..
Donizetti A, Fiengo M, del Gaudio R, Di Giaimo R, Minucci S, Aniello F. Characterization and developmental expression pattern of the relaxin receptor rxfp1 gene in zebrafish. Dev Growth Differ. 2010;52:799-806 pubmed publisher
..The rxfp1 expression pattern in Danio rerio embryos is very similar to that reported in the adult mammalian brain, suggesting a pivotal role of this receptor in the neurophysiology processes already at very early developmental stages. ..
Fortunato A, Langellotto F, Sordino P. Identification and expression of soul/p22HBP genes in zebrafish. Gene Expr Patterns. 2011;11:360-9 pubmed publisher
..Our study constitutes the first detailed analysis of soul gene expression in metazoan development, and provides the basis to understand the genetics of tetrapyrrole metabolism in a wide range of embryonic processes. ..
Donizetti A, Grossi M, Pariante P, D Aniello E, Izzo G, Minucci S, et al
. Two neuron clusters in the stem of postembryonic zebrafish brain specifically express relaxin-3 gene: first evidence of nucleus incertus in fish. Dev Dyn. 2008;237:3864-9 pubmed publisher
..This pattern indicates both conserved and divergent expression features of the relaxin-3 gene among developing zebrafish and rat brains, where only scattered cells express the gene in the periaqueductal gray. ..
Donizetti A, Fiengo M, Minucci S, Aniello F. Duplicated zebrafish relaxin-3 gene shows a different expression pattern from that of the co-orthologue gene. Dev Growth Differ. 2009;51:715-22 pubmed publisher
..Both the putative mature protein sequences are highly conserved, this feature and their differential expression patterns might indicate a sub-functionalization during evolution with the consequent retention of the two paralogues genes. ..
