Figure 2

Misexpression of testis-specific genes in the KG ovaries. (A) Abnormal splicing of Bmdsx mRNAs in the KG ovaries. The primers that can discriminate female- and male-type Bmdsx were used. (B) Misexpression of testis-specific genes in the KG ovaries. The amounts of indicated mRNAs were measured by qPCR, normalized to rp49, and described as a box plot. Expressions of testis-specific genes in the WT and KG ovaries were enlarged. n = 3 for the WT ovaries, WT testes, and KG testes. n = 8 for the KG ovaries. * p < 0.05, Student's t-test. NS, non significant.
