Molecular cloning and gene expression of the prox1a and prox1b genes in the medaka, Oryzias latipes.


Prox1 is a prospero-related homeobox gene. Prox1 is expressed in various internal organs and is related to those differentiations. Small fishes such as the zebrafish and the medaka are useful model animals in the clarification of the mechanism of development. The zebrafish prox1 is also identified, and it contributes to clarifying the function of prox1… (More)
