 Instrumental for studies investigating the development of germ cells, and especially the separation of the germline in the early embryo, are molecular markers which reliably label germ cells and with which regulative factors of germ cell development may be analyzed. Here, we describe the monoclonal antibody PG-2, which is highly specific for the germ cells of the rabbit embryo and labels the perimitochondrial cytoplasm, as demonstrated by immunogold-silver staining. Identical expression… CONTINUE READING
