Characterization of the human and mouse HEY1, HEY2, and HEYL genes: cloning, mapping, and mutation screening of a new bHLH gene family.


Many basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factors are known as key regulators of embryonic development or differentiation in various species. We have isolated and characterized three new hairy-related bHLH transcription factor genes from mouse and human (hairy and Enhancer-of-split related with YRPW motif; HEY1, HEY2, and HEYL). All three HEY genes… (More)
