Abundance of transcripts for BPI-like genes in different tissues: Reverse transcriptase-PCR analyses were performed using RNA extracted from the following bovine tissues: (1) parotid salivary gland, (2) submandibular salivary gland, (3) buccal salivary gland, (4) tracheal lining, (5) olfactory tract mucosa, (6) nasal mucosa, (7) vomeronasal organ. The PCR was performed using primer pairs specific for bovine BASE and BPIL3, as indicated. The primer sequences are listed in the Methods. The expected product sizes are 596 bp (BPIL3), 454 bp (BASE), and 428 bp (BSP30D).
