Xenopus paraxis homologue shows novel domains of expression.


The paraxis gene encodes a basic helix-loop-helix transcription factor that is expressed in paraxial mesoderm and whose mutant displays an inability to form epithelial somites. Here, the molecular characterization of Xenopus paraxis is reported. paraxis is expressed in the paraxial mesoderm and somites but is down-regulated during muscle differentiation. In… (More)
