The vertebrate hindbrain is subject to a transient segmentation process leading to the formation of seven or eight metameric territories termed rhombomeres (r). This segmentation provides the basis for the subsequent establishment of hindbrain neuronal organization and participates in the patterning of the neural crest involved in craniofacial development.(More)
The morphogenesis of the vertebrate hindbrain involves the generation of metameric units called rhombomeres (r), and Krox20 encodes a transcription factor that is expressed in r3 and r5 and plays a major role in this segmentation process. Our knowledge of the basis of Krox20 regulation in r3 is rather confusing, especially concerning the involvement of Hox(More)
