Cloning of transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) and its type II receptor from zebrafish ovary and role of TGF-beta 1 in oocyte maturation.


TGF-beta is a multifunctional factor involved in regulating a variety of cellular activities. In mammals, TGF-beta is known to regulate reproduction, including ovarian functions. The role of TGF-beta in lower vertebrates, such as fish, is poorly understood. To examine the role of TGF-beta in fish reproduction, cDNAs encoding TGF-beta 1 and the type II TGF… (More)
