Abstract
    To clarify the characteristics of germ cells during differentiation and gametogenesis, we cloned tilapia vasa homologue (vas) cDNA. Using vas, we examined the expression of vas in germ cell stages from PGCs to gametogenesis. in situ hybridization for vas mRNA indicated that signals are present in migrated PGCs at 0 dah. PGCs continued to express vas mRNA after incorporation in the gonadal anlage. During oogenesis, vas transcripts were expressed strongly in stages from oogonia to diplotene oocytes. Thereafter, hybridization signals decreased in stages from vitellogenic oocytes to full grown oocytes.
