In contrast to the decrease of ap24 expression as development progressed, all larval stages exhibited similar expression profiles to one another for the engrailed gene (Fig.
Levels ofmRNA transcript for ap24 and engrailed did not change when abalone larvae were raised at lower pH (pH differences of 0.
No difference in gene expression for engrailed was found for pH treatment or developmental stage (Fig.
Primer sequences were as follows: engrailed forward, 5'-TTC TTC GTC TTC CTG GAT CGA-3'; engrailed, dreverse, 5'-CTG CTT GGG TAT ACT GCA CAA GAT-3'; ap24 forward, 5'-GTC GTC GAG GAA TGT AAC ACT AAG G-3'; ap24 reverse, 5'-GAG ATT TGC CGG CTG TTG A-3'; EFI[alpha] forward, 5'-GGA GGG TCA AAC CCG AGA AC-3': and EF1[alpha] reverse, 5'-CCG ATG ATG AGT TGC TTC ACA-3'.
To quantify engrailed, ap24, and EF1[alpha] mRNA expression, 1 control cDNA sample was used to develop a standard curve for all primer sets relating threshold cycle to cDNA amount, and this standard curve was run on each plate.
Characterization of biomineralization genes in abalone larvae was analyzed using qPCR from the relative levels of messenger RNA (mRNA) for engrailed, ap24 (accession no.
Partial sequences for engrailed were obtained using primers designed from conserved regions of Haliotis asinina engrailed (accession no.
