Identification of novel paired homeodomain protein related to C. elegans unc-4 as a potential downstream target of MASH1.
A novel paired homeodomain protein, PHD1, that is most closely related to C. elegans unc-4 has been identified by a differential RT-PCR method. PHD1 is expressed in a narrow layer adjacent to theExpand
