Insulin has metabolic, growth, and differentiation effects in chicken embryos in vivo and it is required for normal development. Whether the pancreas is the sole source of insulin in embryogenesis is controversial. In the present study we investigated (1) the developmental pattern of expression of the chicken insulin gene in the pancreas; (2) the expression of the insulin gene in three nonpancreatic tissues, liver, brain, and lower limb, during chicken development; and (3) the expression of the… CONTINUE READING
