Differential expression of three galaxin-related genes during settlement and metamorphosis in the scleractinian coral Acropora millepora

Reyes-Bermudez, Alejandro; Lin, Zhiyi; Hayward, David; Miller, David J; Ball, Eldon

Description

BACKGROUND: The coral skeleton consists of CaCO3 deposited upon an organic matrix primarily as aragonite. Currently galaxin, from Galaxea fascicularis, is the only soluble protein component of the organic matrix that has been characterized from a coral. Three genes related to galaxin were identified in the coral Acropora millepora. RESULTS: One of the Acropora genes (Amgalaxin) encodes a clear galaxin ortholog, while the others (Amgalaxin-like 1 and Amgalaxin-like 2) encode larger and more...[Show more]
