High impact information on otomp


Anatomical context of otomp

  • Thus the zOMP promoter constitutes a powerful tool which should be useful to selectively introduce a wide variety of genetic modifications into olfactory receptor neurons [2].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of otomp

  • Whole-mount in situ hybridization then revealed that the expression of both zomp-1 and zotolin-1 mRNAs is restricted to the otic vesicles. zomp-1 mRNA was expressed from the 14-somite stage in the otic placode, but the zOMP-1 protein was detected only from 26-somite stage onwards [1].
