LALBA comparative expression. (A) Affymetrix analysis of LALBA and β-casein transcripts in human, cow, mouse and Cape fur seal mammary glands during pregnancy (black bar) and lactation (grey bar). (B) RT-PCR quantitative analysis of LALBA and β-casein expression in Cape fur seal mammary glands during pregnancy (black bar), lactation on-shore (dark grey bar) and lactation off-shore (light grey bar). (C) Interspecies RT-PCR quantitative analysis of LALBA expression levels in mammary glands of Cape fur seal, pig, mouse and wallaby during peak lactation. (D) Milk protein gene transcripts (from a total of 11,232 ESTs) sequenced from Cape fur seal lactating mammary gland. Standard errors are shown.
