Nuclear factor I as a potential regulator during postembryonic organ development.


Nuclear factor I (NFI) family members are transcription factors that are believed to also participate in DNA replication. We have cloned two Xenopus laevis NFIs that are up-regulated by thyroid hormone. They are 84-95% identical to their counterparts in birds and mammals. In contrast, the two Xenopus NFIs are much less homologous to each other, sharing only… (More)
