Abstract
Sequences of candidate chicken testis-specific genes were analysed in order to develop a
resource for functional genomic studies of the testis and male germ cells. Tentative consensus
sequences (TC) containing expressed sequence tags expressed in testis libraries were
selected from the TIGR Gallus gallus Gene Index, resulting in 292 TC. The transcriptional
expression of these genes were evaluated in several chicken tissues, including testis and
ovary. One hundred ten of the 292 TC were expressed in a testis-specific manner. Annotation
of the TC using the Gene Ontology database terms showed that the proportion of
testis-specific TC that were classified as having catalytic activity (within the molecular
function branch) was higher than the proportion of total chicken TC classified in the same
way. Our results may facilitate the investigation of testis-specific genes and their functional
analysis in the chicken, as well as in other avian species.
