High impact information on cyp26b1


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of cyp26b1

  • Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) analysis of embryonic RNAs suggested that no maternal cyp26b1 message is detectable [1].
  • Zygotic cyp26b1 message could be detected at 75% epiboly by RT-PCR and localized to presumptive rhombomere 3 and rhombomere 4 at the early two-somite (2S) stage (10.5 hpf: hour post fertilization) by whole mount in situ hybridization [1].
