Lymphocyte differentiation in sea bass thymus: CD4 and CD8-alpha gene expression studies.


Different developmental stages (from eggs to 1-year-old juveniles) of the teleost fish Dicentrarchus labrax (L.) were assayed for CD4 gene expression. RT-PCR revealed the appearance of CD4 transcripts in post-larvae from 51 days post-hatching (dph). This finding overlaps the first detection of CD8-alpha mRNA. Real-time PCR with specific primers quantified… (More)
