Expression of the Xenopus homologue of the receptor for activated C-kinase 1 (RACK1) in the Xenopus embryo.
We have isolated the Xenopus homologue of the receptor for activated C-kinase 1 (RACK1), whose amino acid sequence shows significant similarity with other vertebrate RACK1s. XRACK1 is a maternally expressed gene and its zygotic expression is detected in the antero-dorsal region and dorsal midline in the late neurula. At tailbud stage, rather diffuse staining is seen in the somite and head. Later, XRACK1 mRNA is expressed highly in ventrally migrating abdominal muscle anlagen, where it remains expressed during subsequent stages.
