Gene expression of salmon buc1, buc2a, buc2b, dnd and vasa. a Ovarian mRNA levels during oogenesis at the freshwater (parr) and early seawater (smolt) stages compared to those in 3-year old ovary (n = 6). b Tissue expression in 2-year old females (n = 2). All tissues were compared to liver. The transcriptional levels of target genes were normalized to eEf1-a. Data are presented as –ΔΔCt ± SE. Significant difference is marked with * (p < 0.05)
