Expression Patterns of Prp Gene During Chicken Embryo Development

Abstract:
In mammalians, PrPC is widely distributed in the Central Nervous System (CNS) and many peripheral tissues. This study demonstrated the expression pattern of ChPrP in the CNS throughout chicken embryo development by real-time quantitative PCR. Chicken PrP gene is expressed in brain as early as embryonic day 5. The expression level gradually elevate to a peak on day 15, then stabilized. The levels of ChPrP mRNA in different tissues and organs were detected after 15 day-old chicken embryos. The highest level of ChPrP mRNA was observed in the brain and lower levels were observed in the following tissues: heart, lung, stomach, intestine, kidney. The expression of ChPrP was not observed in liver. The results therefore raise the possibility that ChPrP plays a essential role in chicken embryo neurons development but the precise and mechanism in this processes remain to be clarified.
