Pituitary homeobox 1 (Ptx1) is differentially expressed during pituitary development.


Pituitary homeobox 1 (Ptx1) is a homeodomain-containing transcription factor acting on transcription of all pituitary hormone genes. Its expression is first detected in the stomodeal ectoderm and is maintained in all derivatives of this structure, including Rathke's pouch. We now show that Ptx1 is expressed in all pituitary cells but that it is… (More)
