Immunoglobulin protein and gene transcripts in ovarian follicles throughout oogenesis in the teleost Dicentrarchus labrax

Abstract

Transfer of immunoglobulins (IgM-like) from the female to the teleost embryo has been demonstrated but mechanisms of uptake into and storage within the eggs remain to be clarified. The monoclonal antibody DLIg3 against Dicentrarchus labrax Ig light chain revealed an active role of both follicle cells and oocytes in the Ig uptake. The primordial follicular… (More)
