Transcriptional control of the murine albumin/a-fetoprotein locus


The ontogeny of expression of the a-fetoprotein (AFP) and albumin genes was examined in livers from late prenatal to 1-month-postpartum C3H/He mice. A parallel accumulation of both AFP and albumin mRNAs before birth, followed by a selective nonreciprocal decrease in AFP mRNA after birth, was observed. The decrease in AFP mRNA was the result of a decrease in… (More)
