Expression of AmphiPOU-IV in the developing neural tube and epidermal sensory neural precursors in amphioxus supports a conserved role of class IV POU genes in the sensory cells development

Abstract

POU genes play a prominent role in the nervous system differentiation of several organism models, and in particular, they are involved in the differentiation of sensory neurons in numerous invertebrate and vertebrate species. In the present report, cloning and expression profile of a class IV POU gene in amphioxus was assessed for understanding its role in… (More)
