Xmeis1, a protooncogene involved in specifying neural crest cell fate in Xenopus embryos


Meis1 (Myeloid Ecotropic viral Integration Site 1) is a homeobox gene that was originally isolated as a common site of viral integration in myeloid tumors of the BXH-2 recombinant inbred mice strain. We previously isolated a Xenopus homolog of Meis1 (Xmeis1). Here we show that Xmeis1 may play a significant role in neural crest development. In developing… (More)
