Genes containing the evolutionarily conserved homeodomain sequence encode a family of DNA-binding transcription factors whose functions are crucial for embryonic development in vertebrates, invertebrates and plants. We describe the detection and analysis of transcripts of homeobox-containing genes present in cDNA libraries generated from human unfertilized oocytes, single cleavage stage embryos (2-cell, 4-cell, 8-cell and blastocyst) and a 10-week old whole fetus. Using degenerate primers… CONTINUE READING
