ResumenIn marine teleosts, the aqp1ab water channel plays a vital role in the development of the pelagic egg phenotype. However, the developmental control of aqp1ab activation during oogenesis remains to be established. Here, we report the isolation of the 5'-flanking region of the teleost gilthead seabream aqp1ab gene, in which we identify conserved cis-regulatory elements for the binding of the nuclear progestin receptor (Pgr) and members of the Sox family of transcription factors. Subcellular localization studies indicated that the Pgr, as well as sox3 and -8. b transcripts, are co-expressed in seabream oogonia, whereas in meiosis-arrested primary growth (pre-vitellogenic) oocytes, when aqp1ab mRNA and protein are first synthesized, the Pgr appears to be completely translocated from the ooplasm into the nucleus. By contrast, sox9b is highly expressed in more advanced oocytes, coinciding with a strong depletion of aqp1ab transcripts in the oocyte. Functional characterization of wild-type and mutated aqp1ab promoter constructs, using mammalian cells and Xenopus laevis oocytes, demonstrated that aqp1ab transcription is initiated by the Pgr, which is activated by the progestin 17α,20Β-dihydroxy-4-pregnen-3-one (17,20Β-P), the natural ligand of the seabream Pgr. In vitro incubation of seabream primary ovarian explants with the follicle-stimulating hormone or 17,20Β-P confirmed that progestin-activated Pgr enhanced Aqp1ab synthesis via the aqp1ab promoter. However, transactivation assays in heterologous systems showed that Sox transcription factors can potentially modulate this mechanism. These data uncover the existence of an endocrine pathway involved in the early activation of a water channel necessary for egg formation in marine teleosts. © 2013 Elsevier Inc.
