The estrogen receptor (ER) genes encode a group of nuclear enhancer proteins, which are important ligand-activated transcription factors, modulating estrogen-target gene transcription. In this study we analyzed expression patterns of three zebrafish ER genes, esr1, esr2a, and esr2b, during development using whole-mount in situ hybridization. High levels of esr2a and esr2b of maternal origin are inherited and segregated to the blastomers. After the mid-blastula transition, the three genes… CONTINUE READING
