In order to measure the content of beta- and gamma-actin mRNA in mouse oocytes and ovulated eggs, Northern and slot blots were hybridized to complementary RNA probes transcribed from mouse isotype-specific cDNA sequences. The blots included samples of isotype-specific sense strand RNA standards prepared from the same cDNA sequences. Total actin mRNA content was estimated to be 40 fg per preovulatory full-grown oocyte or egg, consisting of one-third beta-actin mRNA and two-thirds gamma-actin… CONTINUE READING
