Nucleotide and Derived-Amino Acid Sequence of a Putative Atlantic Hagfish (Myxine glutinosa) Aquaporin 4 cDNA
The Bulletin: Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory
Information concerning aquaporin channels in ancient fish species such as agnathans has only just begun to appear1,2. Due to the low levels of amino acid homology of a recently identified aquaporin (previously called AQP1e) from hagfish (Myxine glutinosa), it was not possible to completely determine whether this gene represented an orthologue of a particular mammalian aquaporin isoform1. However, the recent introduction into the genebank of further sequence data, in particular that of the Pacific hagfish (Eptatretus burgeri) aquaporin 4 (AQP4; Gen Bank Acc. No. AB258403), has allowed further refinement of the analysis of the sequence data.
