ABSTRACTWe have cloned three sox genes in zebrafish (Danio rerio), one related to human and chicken SOX21, and two related to mammalian and chicken Sox-11. Zebrafish sox21, sox11A and sox11B transcripts are accumulated in the egg, are present in all cells until gastrulation and become restricted later to the developing central nervous system (CNS); expression in adults is undetectable. sox21 is expressed in the forebrain, midbrain and hindbrain, but maximally at the midbrain-hindbrain junction; sox11A,B have a widespread and dynamic expression in the CNS, but in contrast to sox21 are absent at the midbrain-hindbrain boundary.
