Expression of Cux-1 and Cux-2 in the developing somatosensory cortex of normal and barrel-defective mice.


Recently, two orthologues of the Drosophila homeobox Cut gene, Cux-1 and Cux-2, have been identified as restricted molecular markers of upper layer (II-IV) neurons in the murine cerebral cortex. We show that during early postnatal life, from P0 to P10, Cux-1 and Cux-2 mRNA are coexpressed in all primary sensory cortices. Antisera to Cux-1 and Cux-2… (More)
