Conserved and divergent functions of Pax6 underlie species-specific neurogenic patterns in the developing amniote brain

The evolution of unique organ structures is associated with changes in conserved developmental programs. However, characterizing the functional conservation and variation of homologous transcription factors (TFs) that dictate species-specific cellular dynamics has remained elusive. Here, we dissect shared and divergent functions of Pax6 during amniote brain… CONTINUE READING
