However, there is no empirical evidence for this gene phenotype relationship. There is a unique OCA4 mutant in medaka (b) that exhibits albinism only in the skin, but the mechanism underlying this phenotype is also unknown. In this study, we rescued medaka OCA4 phenotypes, in both the eyes and the skin, by micro-injection of an slc45a2-containing genomic fragment or slc45a2 cDNA driven by its own 0.9-kb promoter. We also identified a spontaneous nucleotide change of 339 bp in the promoter as the b mutation. There are multiple transcription start sites in medaka slc45a2, as in its human ortholog, and only the shortest and eye-specific mRNA is transcribed with the b mutation. Interestingly, we further revealed a conserved pyrimidine (Py)-rich sequence of ~10 bp in the promoter by medaka pufferfish comparative genomics and verified that it plays an indispensable role for expression of slc45a2 in the skin. Further studies of the 0.9-kb promoter identified in this study should provide insights into the cis/trans-regulatory mechanisms underlying the ocular and cutaneous expression of slc45a2.</dcterms:abstract> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="http://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/7718"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
