RT-PCR expression of tammar USM1, MSMB1 and MSMP in various tissues. USM1 expression was detected more strongly in endometrium but not in any other tissues, consistent with a specific role in the postovulatory coats. MSMB1 and MSMP were both expressed in testis, while MSMB1 was also expressed in the pituitary gland, consistent with a possible role in the pituitary-gonadal axis.
