Germ line specific expression of a vasa homologue gene in turbot (Scophthalmus maximus): evidence for vasa localization at cleavage furrows in euteleostei.


Specification of primordial germ cells during early embryogenesis is a critical biological issue in reproduction and development. Yet, little is known in marine economic fish species. Vasa, a component of germ plasm, is the most-documented germ cell marker in teleosts. We isolated a full-length vasa cDNA (Smvas) from turbot (Scophthalmus maximus), a marine… (More)
