Amphioxus Tbx6/16 and Tbx20 embryonic expression patterns reveal ancestral functions in chordates.

Abstract

T-box transcription factors are found in all metazoans and play diverse roles during embryogenesis. In the cephalochordate amphioxus, nine T-box genes were previously identified. In this work we undertook the analysis of the embryonic expression pattern of Tbx6/16 and Tbx20, the last two T-box genes for which no such data are available. We found that Tbx6… (More)
