Human erythropoietin gene expression in primary cultured oviduct cells from estrogen-stimulated chicks






Animal Science & Technology 68(12): 1133-1136

Human erythropoietin gene expression in primary cultured oviduct cells from estrogen-stimulated chicks

The present study was conducted to investigate whether or not the human erythropoietin gene is expressed in primary cultured oviduct cells from estrogen-stimulated chicks. The erythropoietin gene was transfected by calcium phosphate precipitation, and erythropoietin mRNA level was determined by RNA:RNA solution hybridization during the culture periods for up to 72 hrs. The results indicated that the human erythropoietin gene was actually transcribed in the chicken oviduct cells, and erythropoietin mRNA concentration increased on the basis of both per cells and per total nucleic acids as the culture period went by, reaching maximal values at 72 hrs.

Though estrogen prolongs the half-life of chicken ovalbumin (OVA) mRNA in vivo, little has been described about the molecular mechanism by which estrogen stabilizes the OVA mRNA. As a first trial to discover this molecular mechanism, the organ cul...
