|Identification and Developmental Expression of the Zebrafish ZGC:154061 Gene, a Conserved Yet Uncharacterized Maternally Expressed MEIS2 Linked Gene
||We have identified a novel and previously undescribed gene, zgc:154061, located directly downstream of the zebrafish meis2.2 gene. We have identified putative orthologs of this gene in all animals that we have been able to examine. The zgc:154061 gen...
|Identification of Gene Regulatory Elements Associated With the Meis Family of Homeobox Genes
||Homologs of the Meis homeobox-containing gene family (myeloid ecotropic leukemia virus integration site) have been identified in all animals studied. The products of the Meis genes appear to function as cofactors, interacting with other transcriptio...
|Identification and Embryonic Expression of a Highly Conserved Meis-Linked Gene
||Using a comparative genomics approach we have identified a novel and previously undescribed gene in zebrafish, zgc:154061, which we have temporarily named meis2 linked gene (m2lg). This gene is located directly downstream of the zebrafish meis2.2 gen...
|Conserved Non-Coding Element Derived Regulation of the Meis2.2 Homeobox Gene During Embryonic Development
||The homeobox-containing Meis gene family includes at least four members that are expressed in spatially and temporally conserved fashion throughout development in all vertebrates examined thus far. Products of the Meis genes function as cofactors, i...
|Further Characterization Of A Highly Conserved Novel Meis2 Linked Gene And Protein Product
||We have identified a novel gene linked to the Meis2 gene (meis2.2 in zebrafish) in all vertebrates. This gene is always located immediately downstream of Meis2 (meis2.2 in zebrafish) and is organized in an inverted convergently-transcribed manner. ...
|Characterization of the Meis2a Downstream Regulatory Element Dr-m2de1
||We have identified four highly conserved noncoding elements associated with the vertebrate Meis2 gene and named them m2de1-4 (for Meis2 downstream element). Using the Tol2 system we have generated transgenic zebrafish in which the zebrafish element (...
|Identification And Characterization Of A Highly Conserved Noncoding Element Associated With The Meis2 Gene; M2de2
||Meis genes are conserved across species and play important roles in embryogenesis. There are four known members of the Meis gene family in vertebrates. Because of the genome duplication event in the teleost lineage, following the divergence from the ...
