We describe a new gene (Oogenesin) that is expressed through oogenesis and early embryogenesis in the mouse. De novo expression starts at 15.5 dpc (days postcoitum) in the ovary, which coincides with the start of oogenesis. The isolated cDNA was 1387 base pairs (bp) in length with a single open reading frame of 326 amino acids corresponding to a predicted molecular mass of 37 kDa with no significant homology to previously reported sequences. A remarkable characteristic of the gene is the… CONTINUE READING
