Cloning and differential expression of FOXL2 during ovarian development and recrudescence of the catfish, Clarias gariepinus.

FOXL2 is a member of the forkhead/HNF-3-related family of transcription factors which provides tissue-specific gene regulation. It is known to regulate ovarian aromatase, (cyp19a1a) which plays a crucial role in ovarian differentiation. To understand the role of FOXL2 in gonads and brain during ovarian development and recrudescence, we cloned the full… CONTINUE READING
