Mouse gonad Gcnf Expression
Analysis of Germ Cell Nuclear Factor (Gcnf) pluripotency-associated genes, and meiosis-related gene expression profiles in PGCs in male and female embryonic gonads and in spermatogonial cells. Gcnf possible function in the activation or initiation of meiosis by enhancing Stra8 expression and inhibiting the expression of pluripotency-associated genes.
- A–F - Analysis of β-galactosidase activity in male (left-hand side of each panel) and female (right-hand side of each panel) gonads in Gcnf LacZ KI embryos on E12.5 to E17.5.
- G–L - Whole-mount in situ hybridization (WMISH) analysis of Gcnf expression in the gonads of wt male (left-hand side of each panel) and female mice (right-hand side of each panel) on E12.5 to E17.5.
- 454-amino acid polypeptide with a molecular weight of 52 kD.
- amino acid sequences of mouse and human GCNF are 99% identical.
- ligand-activated transcription factor.
