Identification of a marsupial OTF1 gene: Cross-species STS analysis and in situ cross-hybridization to Macropus eugenii chromosomes 3/4 and 5 Academic Article uri icon


  • The ability of the human octamer-binding transcription factor 1 (gene symbol: OTF1) sequence tagged site (STS) marker to identify cross-species gene homologues has been assessed using the marsupial Macropus eugenii genome. Two regions of sequence homology with human OTF1 have been located on M. eugenii chromosomes 3/4 and 5 by in situ hybridization. These regions are likely to represent cross-reaction with the homologues of human OTF1 and closely related OTF2 genes.
