Expression of zebrafish cyp11a1 as a maternal transcript and in yolk syncytial layer.

Abstract

Cyp11a1 (P450scc, cholesterol side-chain cleavage enzyme) is the first enzyme for the synthesis of all steroid hormones. The regulation of steroid synthesis has been extensively investigated, except during embryogenesis. To study steroidogenesis in embryos, we have isolated the zebrafish cyp11a1 gene, which consists of 11 exons. Reverse transcription… (More)
