The spatial pattern of expression of the murine homeo box-containing gene Hox 1.5 was studied during embryogenesis. In situ hybridization of single-stranded RNA probes to mouse embryo sections revealed a specific spatial distribution of the Hox 1.5 transcripts in mouse embryos 8.5 to 12.5 days postcoitum (p.c.). Analysis of mouse embryos 8.5 days p.c. showed that the gene is expressed in a spatially restricted manner. Expression appears to be limited to the central nervous system with an… CONTINUE READING
