- ... The small Mafs, MafF, MafG and MafK play critical roles in morphogenesis and homeostasis through associating with Cap “n” Collar family of transcription factors. In this study, we tried to identify a small Maf protein in the freshwater mussel Cristaria plicata. The MafK cDNA of C. plicata, designated as CpMafK, was cloned from the hemocytes using degenerate primers by the rapid amplification of cD ...
