The Brx1 homeobox gene has been isolated and shown to be expressed in the zona limitans intrathalamica (ZLI) of the mouse embryo. Brx1 is a member of the Brx gene family and comprises the genes for Brx1a and Brx1b, which differ in the sequence in the region located on the 5'-terminal side of the homeobox. The complete amino acid sequences of the open… CONTINUE READING
