Cyclo-oxygenase 2 tissue distribution and developmental pattern of expression in the chicken

Abstract : 1. Cyclo-oxygenase 2 (COX-2) is implicated in multiple physiopathological processes. We have studied its physiological expression during chicken embryogenesis. 2. An original procedure was set to prepare a COX-2 probe from red blood cells. In situ hybridization, reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and northern blots, were performed on chick embryos from embryonic day (E) 3 to postnatal day 15. 3. In the mesonephros, the signal detected in mesonephric tubules presented a slow increase from E5 to E9, a plateau up to E12 and then a decrease, while the signal increased in the metanephros and then decreased after hatching. Transient expression of COX-2 mRNA in endothelial cells of the infundibulum of the aorta was also detected between E12 and E17. 4. This enzyme may have important roles in kidney morphogenesis during early embryonic stages and in tubular functions during development and in adult life. In the cardiovascular system, its vasodilatory effect could modulate the vasoconstrictor effect of the systolic pressure between E12 and E17 and contribute to a normal morphogenesis of the arterial tree and heart.
