• PGCs
  • Chicken PGCs collected from the primitive gonads of 5.5-day-old White Leghorn chicken embryos were plated together with their own stroma cells as co-culture. (gov.tw)
  • These results suggested that chicken PGCs maintained in long-term culture retains their capacity to express pluripotent markers and to integrate into the gonads. (gov.tw)
  • nos-2 is expressed in PGCs around the time of gastrulation from a maternal RNA associated with P granules, and is required for the efficient incorporation of PGCs into the somatic gonad. (biologists.org)
  • development
  • This gene is considered the sex-determining gene in chicken, because among genes that govern sexual development, Dmrt1 resides on the sex chromosomes, acts in a sex-specific pattern in the gonad earliest among those genes, and sex is reversed when Dmrt1 expression is suppressed [ 12 ].

  • Here, we present an in vivo structure-function analysis of FOI that strongly indicates that zinc transport activity of FOI is essential for gonad development. (biologists.org)
