We have used a human phosphoglycerate kinase-1 (PGK-1) cDNA clone to study expression of PGK-2 during mouse spermatogenesis. Hybrid selection, in vitro translation with product identification by 2-D gel electrophoresis demon-strated that the PGK-1 cDNA clone hybridized to PGK-2 mRNA in mouse testes. Northern analyses of RNA purified from separated spermatogenic cells demonstrated a large increase in abundance of PGK-2 mRNA in post-meiotic cells. Thus, post-meiotic transcription of PGK-2 mRNA is demonstrable with cloned DNA probes.
