High impact information on rrm1

  • We first show that, as in mouse, lack of Otx function in zebrafish leads to transformation of the presumptive mesencephalon into an extended rhombomere 1 (r1) [1].
  • Detailed analysis of the AMH1 enhancer showed that it directs expression in the rhombomere 1 (r1) region and the dorsal thalamus, as has been shown for gbx2, whereas no expression was induced by the AMH1 enhancer in other embryonic regions in which gbx2 is expressed [2].

Biological context of rrm1

  • In accordance with these results, enhancer activity in the PB1-A region, as well as gbx2 expression in r1, was missing in no isthmus mutant embryos that lacked functional pax2a [2].
