During gestation, the paired box-containing gene Pax2 is expressed in the mid-hindbrain area, developing eye and inner ear. We generated Pax2 null mutant mice, which show the requirement of Pax2 for the establishment of axonal pathways along the optic stalks and ventral diencephalon. In mutant brains, the optic tracts remain totally ipsilateral due to(More)
Urogenital system development in mammals requires the coordinated differentiation of two distinct tissues, the ductal epithelium and the nephrogenic mesenchyme, both derived from the intermediate mesoderm of the early embryo. The former give rise to the genital tracts, ureters and kidney collecting duct system, whereas mesenchymal components undergo(More)
Secondary metabolism, usually superfluous under laboratory conditions, is intrinsically elusive to genetic analysis of its regulation. We describe here a method of analyzing regulatory mutations affecting expression of secondary metabolic genes, with an Aspergillus nidulans penicillin structural gene (ipnA [encoding isopenicillin N-synthase]) as a model.(More)
The Aspergillus nidulans IPNS gene, encoding isopenicillin N synthetase, is a secondary metabolism gene. It is contiguous to, but divergently transcribed from, the ACVS gene at the penicillin gene cluster. The untranslated region between both ORFs is 872bp long. Here we present the physical and functional characterization of the IPNS transcriptional unit.(More)
We have constructed a translational fusion between the isopenicillin-N-synthetase-encoding gene (IPNS) of Aspergillus nidulans and the lacZ gene of Escherichia coli. Recombinant strains carrying a single copy of the fusion integrated at the IPNS locus produced beta-galactosidase (beta Gal) during secondary metabolism. Integration of the fusion at the argB(More)
