Effects of insulin-like growth factor-I, estrogen, glucocorticoid, and transferrin on the mRNA contents of ovalbumin and conalbumin in primary cultures of quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) oviduct cells



Effects of insulin-like growth factor-I, estrogen, glucocorticoid, and transferrin on the mRNA contents of ovalbumin and conalbumin in primary cultures of quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica) oviduct cells



Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology. Part C Pharmacology Toxicology and Endocrinology 110(2): 157-164



The effects of estrogen, dexamethasone, insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), and transferrin on the messenger RNA (mRNA) contents of ovalbumin and conalbumin in primary cultures of quail oviduct cells were investigated. In the absence of one of the above hormones or factors, a decrease in ovalbumin mRNA was prominent. In particular, removal of IGF-I and transferrin caused a significant effect. Studies using a combination of estrogen, dexamethasone, IGF-I and transferrin indicated that IGF-I cooperates with estrogen or dexamethasone and transferrin works with dexamethasone. Specifically, IGF-I enhanced ovalbumin synthesis or increased cellular ovalbumin mRNA content depending on its concentration in the medium in the presence of estrogen. However, the effects of estrogen, dexamethasone, IGF-I, and transferrin were not similarly observed with conalbumin mRNA. These results show that ovalbumin synthesis is controlled by estrogen or glucocorticoid with IGF-I or transferrin and that cellular ovalbumin mRNA content is also regulated by these hormones or transferrin. In contrast, conalbumin synthesis and cellular content of conalbumin mRNA are not affected by these hormones under the conditions of the present study.
