Quantification of gonadotropin subunits GPalpha, FSHbeta, and LHbeta mRNA expression from Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) throughout a reproductive cycle.

Abstract

To elucidate the role of the gonadotropins in Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), complete coding sequences with partially or fully un-translated regions for the three subunits GPalpha, FSHbeta, and LHbeta were determined. The sequences of the corresponding genomic loci were also determined, allowing the design of mRNA-targeting quantitative PCR assays. Relative… (More)
