Cloning and characterization of the retinoid X receptor from a primitive crustacean Daphnia magna


By: Y. Wang n, G. Wang n & G. LeBlanc n

author keywords: crustacean; Daphnia; RXR; hormone; receptor; endocrine; sex determination
MeSH headings : Amino Acid Sequence; Animals; Base Sequence; Cloning, Molecular; DNA, Complementary / genetics; Daphnia / genetics; Daphnia / metabolism; Ecdysterone / pharmacology; Fatty Acids, Unsaturated / metabolism; Female; Gene Expression Regulation, Developmental / drug effects; Male; Molecular Sequence Data; Phylogeny; Pyridines / pharmacology; RNA, Messenger / biosynthesis; RNA, Messenger / genetics; Retinoid X Receptors / antagonists & inhibitors; Retinoid X Receptors / biosynthesis; Retinoid X Receptors / genetics; Reverse Transcriptase Polymerase Chain Reaction; Sequence Alignment
TL;DR: Results show that branchiopod crustaceans dynamically express RXR which should be evaluated as a candidate receptor for the terpenoid hormone methyl farnesoate which functions as a sex determinant in these organisms. (via Semantic Scholar)
