Expression pattern of the rat Lim-1 homeobox gene suggests a dual role during kidney development.


This study describes an in situ hybridization and immunohistochemical analysis of Lim-1 homeobox gene expression during kidney development in the rat. Lim-1 is expressed at all stages of mesonephric and metanephric kidney development. In the metanephros, Lim-1 gene mRNA is first found at day 13 in the ureteric bud, but not in uninduced mesenchyme… (More)
