High impact information on Dach2

  • Finally, to test the functional conservation hypothesis, we generated Dach2; Dach1 double mutant mice [1].
  • Pax3 and Dach2 positive regulation in the developing somite [2].
  • In addition, we determine that Dach2 expression in the forebrain of Pax6 mutants and dermamyotome of Pax3 mutants is not detectably altered [3].
