The early embryonic events involved in the commitment of mesoderm to form blood have not been studied in detail for lack of molecular markers. We have studied the expression of the hematopoietic transcription factors GATA-1 and GATA-2 during Xenopus embryogenesis. During development GATA-1 expression is localized to the ventral region of the embryo and precedes the expression of embryonic globins. GATA-2 is highly expressed in the ventral region of the embryo by the end of gastrulation and… CONTINUE READING
