Expression profiling of two unknown ovarian transcripts by real-time quantitative RT-PCR. Quantification of CU652878 and CU638235 gene expression in sheep ovaries at Days 44, 55, 60, 65, 75, 82, 90 and 114 and adulthood. HPRT1 (hypoxanthine phosphoribosyltransferase) gene was used as a reporter gene. Both genes displayed female-specific gene expression. They were only detected during fetal life. Peak expression was observed at around D55 with a second peak at around D90, after which expression decreased and was not detected in adult ovary. SEM were calculated at stages D60, 82, 90 and adult.
