High impact information on hoxa13b

  • We conclude that the early expression pattern in tetrapods is similar to that seen in late fin development and that the local exclusion by Hoxa-13 of Hoxa-11 from the distal limb bud is a derived feature of limb developmental regulation [1].
  • There is, however, a short period of limb bud development where Hoxa-11 and Hoxa-13 overlap similarly to the late expression seen in zebrafish and paddlefish [1].
  • In tetrapod limb development Hoxa-11 plays a key role in differentiating the lower limb and Hoxa-13 plays a key role in differentiating the autopodium [1].

Other interactions of hoxa13b

  • During fin regeneration, hoxa11b and hoxa13b genes are both induced in undifferentiated cells of the distalmost blastema region (DMB) and the proliferating zone (PZ) and later in differentiating bone-forming cells [2].
