High impact information on tbx6

  • Here we demonstrate that three T-box genes expressed in the zebrafish mesoderm, no tail, spadetail, and tbx6, operate as a network of interacting genes to regulate region-specific gene expression and developmental fate [1].
  • Three observations link the expression of tbx6 to ventral mesoderm specification [2].
  • Transcription of tbx6 commences about an hour after initiation of expression of the pan-mesendodermal gene no tail and the organizer gene goosecoid [2].
  • The evolutionary relationships of zebrafish genes tbx6, tbx16/spadetail and mga [3].
