High impact information on Klf13

  • In the gut and bladder at E16, Klf13 is expressed in the epithelial cell layer whereas Klf9 is expressed in both the muscle and epithelial layers [1].
  • At E11, both genes are expressed in high levels in the cephalic mesenchyme whilst Klf13 and not Klf9 is expressed at high levels in the developing heart at E8 and E11 [1].

Biological context of Klf13

  • Klf9 and Klf13 are members of the C(2)H(2) zinc finger family of transcription factors that are thought to be involved in regulating basal transcription [1].
