The role of gonadal hormones in gene expression of calbindin (Mr 28,000) in the laying hen.


Acute and chronic changes in calbindin (Mr 28,000) mRNA and calbindin concentrations were determined to assess the roles of steroid hormones in calbindin mRNA and calbindin synthesis in the eggshell gland (ESG). The results support an earlier suggestion that calbindin gene expression in the ESG is associated with Ca2+ flux through the ESG. The evidence… (More)
