Transcriptome analyses of male germ cells with serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE).


Serial analysis of gene expression (SAGE) provides an alternative with additional advantages to microarrays for studying gene expression during spermatogenesis. The digitized transcriptome provided by SAGE of purified mouse germ cells identified 27,504 species of transcripts expressed in type A spermatogonia, pachytene spermatocytes, and round spermatids… (More)
