The ecotropic viral integration site 1 (Evi1) and related MEL1 (MDS1/Evi1-like gene 1) genes are zinc finger oncogenic transcription factors involved in myeloid leukaemia. Here, we show that in Xenopus, Evi1 and MEL1 have partially overlapping restricted embryonic expression profiles. Within the pronephros, Evi1 and MEL1 are sequentially expressed within the distal tubule and duct compartments, Evi1 transcription being detected prior to any sign of pronephric morphogenesis. In the pronephros of… CONTINUE READING
