Avidin gene expression was analyzed using an avidin immunoassay and RNA hybridization analysis. To ascertain whether the induction of the avidin gene by progesterone remains specific also during secondary restimulation with diethylstilbestrol, chicks were given different steroid hormones or hormone combinations. Progesterone-specific induction of avidin protein and messenger RNA (mRNA) was 15- to 30-fold over the control even after secondary restimulation with diethylstilbestrol.
