Abstract

GrblO Interacting GYF domain (GIGYF 1) and Grb 10 interacting GYF domain 2 belong to GIGYF family genes. These two genes interact with Grb I 0, an adapter protein activate Insulin-like Growth Factor-I (lGF-I) through two-hybrid screening. Function of these two genes is regulating tyrosine kinase receptor signaling including IGF-I and insulin signaling. Recently, GIGYF 2 has been nominated as candidate gene involved in Parkinson's disease (PO) as it fallen within PARK II locus, thus, GIGYF 1 was believed it is related in PO since GIGYF 1 is homologous with GIGYF 2. However, functions of GIGYF 1 are remain largely unknown, thus this study might give a hint of function of GIGYF 1. Zebrafish is the organism that suitable for human disease study because zebrafish will often have two GIGYF 1 genes that are GIGYF la and GIGYF I b which are both orthologs of a single mammalian gene. The GIGYF I has an extra tetraploidization with the occurrence of genome duplication. Duplication-Degenerative-Complementation event enable further study of GIGYF I gene, including its functional role in PD. GIGYF I b gene was cloned into pGEM®-T Easy vector and the plasmid with the inserted gene was extracted and stored and ready for probe synthesis for in situ hybridization.
