To better understand the development of ventral mesencephalic dopamine neurons, we performed subtractive hybridization screens to find ventral mesencephalic genes expressed at rat embryonic day 10 when these neurons begin to differentiate. The most commonly identified genes in these screens were members of the Bex (Brain expressed X-linked) gene family, rat Bex1 (Rex3), and a novel gene, rat Bex4. After identifying these genes, we then sought to characterize the Bex gene family. Two additional… CONTINUE READING
