Biological context of Foxi1


Anatomical context of Foxi1

  • Lack of pendrin expression leads to deafness and expansion of the endolymphatic compartment in inner ears of Foxi1 null mutant mice [3].
  • While Foxi1 is expressed in the entire otic vesicle at E9.5, it becomes gradually restricted to the endolymphatic duct/sac epithelium and at E16.5 Foxi1 expression in the inner ear is confined to this epithelium [3].
  • Postnatally, inner ears of Foxi1(-/-) mice are extremely expanded, and large irregular cavities, compressing the cerebellum and the otherwise normal middle ear, have replaced the delicate compartments of the wild-type inner ear [3].
  • 5. These results suggest that the mouse Foxi class genes may play important roles, both during cranial placode specification and in later development of individual cranial sensory structures and other organs derived from the cranial ectoderm [5].

Associations of Foxi1 with chemical compounds

  • These patterns contrasted with the later (from E15.5) and progressive expression of IC-specific a4, B1, G3, and C2 subunits, after the induction of the forkhead transcription factor Foxi1 [6].
