Pitx2, a homeodomain transcription factor, is essential for normal development of the pituitary gland, craniofacial region, eyes, heart, abdominal viscera, and limbs. Complete loss of Pitx2 in mice (Pitx2(-/-)) results in embryonic lethality by approximately e15 due to cardiac defects, whereas embryos with partial loss of function (Pitx2(neo/-) or(More)
The subthalamic nucleus (STN) is a crucial node in the basal ganglia. Clinical success in targeting the STN for deep brain stimulation in Parkinson's disease patients has prompted increased interest in understanding STN biology. In this report, we discuss recent evidence for transcription factor mediated regulation of STN development. We also review STN(More)
