This article reports on the comparative cell type-specific expression profiles of selected core promoter-associated transcription factors during gametogenesis and embryogenesis in frogs and mice. In frogs we tested TBP, TRF2/TLF, TRF3, TFIIAalphabeta, and ALF, as well as variant forms of TAFs 4, 5, and 6. Four of these factors, TRF3, TAF4L, TAF5L, and the previously-characterized ALF gene, are preferentially expressed in testis and ovary. In mice we tested TBP, TRF2/TLF, TRF3, TFIIAalphabeta… CONTINUE READING
