Conserved and divergent expression of T-box genes Tbx2-Tbx5 in Xenopus


We report here the identification of four members of T-box family genes, Xltbx2-Xltbx5, in Xenopus. Two of them are probable pseudovariant genes of XTbx5 and ET, a putative Xenopus ortholog of Tbx3. We compared their expression patterns in both embryos and limbs. In embryos, expression of Xltbx2 and Xltbx3 showed novel diversities, such as Xltbx2 in the… (More)
