Table 1: The efficiency of the establishment of chicken primordial germ cell (PGC) lines. (a) 21 PGC lines from Partridge colour Hungarian chicken breed (PC lines) were established. We got 4 (19%) female PGC lines. (b) 10 GFP-expressing White Leghorn embryo-derived chicken PGC lines (GFP lines) were established. 2 (20%) female PGC lines were detected. PC PGC lines: Partridge colour Hungarian chicken embryo-derived primordial germ cell lines, GFP PGC lines: green fluorescent protein- (GFP-) expressing transgenic chicken embryo-derived primordial germ cell lines.
