Yonei-Tamura, S., Tamura, K., Tsukui, T., and Izpisúa Belmonte, J.C. (1999) Spatially and temporally-restricted expression of two T-box genes during zebrafish embryogenesis. Mechanisms of Development. 80(2):219-221.
T-box genes are conserved in all animal species. We have identified two members of the T-box gene family from the zebrafish, Danio rerio. Zf-tbr1 and zf-tbx3 share high amino acid identity with human, murine, chick and Xenopus orthologs and are expressed in specific regions during zebrafish development.
