The T-box gene family encodes a set of transcription factors that are involved in various developmental processes. We isolated tbx20 gene from chick embryos and examined in detail its expression patterns during heart development. In situ hybridization showed that tbx20 was expressed in the lateral plate mesoderm and subsequently in the primitive heart tube… CONTINUE READING
