Direct contributions of Otx2 as a positional tag to global gene regulation in the head organizer in Xenopus embryos Yuuri Yasuoka1, Yutaka Suzuki2, Shuji Takahashi3, Norihiro Sudou 1, Yoshikazu Haramoto 4, Makoto Asashima, Sumio Sugano2, and Masanori Taira1 1Dept of Biol Sci, Grad Sch of Sci; 2Dept of Med Genome Sci, Grad Sch of Front Sci; 3Div of.   The Xenopus laevis egg stockpiles mitochondria and mitochondrial DNA along with other organelles and macromolecules during its year-long development ().This active period of mitochondrial biogenesis ceases with the completion of egg development and does not resume until relatively late in embryogenesis, as measured by mtDNA synthesis, cytochrome oxidase activity, and mitochondrial .

Regulatory elements of Xenopus col2a1 drive cartilaginous gene expression in transgenic frogs RYAN KERNEY*,1, BRIAN K. HALL1 and JAMES HANKEN2 1Biology Department, Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada and 2Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA, USA ABSTRACT This study characterizes regulatory elements of collagen 2 α1 (col2a1) in Xenopus that. For these approaches, fixed embryos must be used, and Xenopus offers many advantages. Xenopus is a vertebrate tetrapod closely related to mammals. The large size of their embryos makes them ideal for imaging patterns of gene expression during development.

Developmental expression of the N-myc downstream regulated gene (Ndrg) family during Xenopus tropicalis embryogenesis CHAO ZHONG 1, YAN-KUAN ZHOU, SHAN-SHAN YANG2, JUN-FANG ZHAO1, XIAO-LONG ZHU1, ZHEN-HUANG CHEN1, PEI-CHAO CHEN2, LI-QUAN HUANG1 and XIAO HUANG*,1 1College of Life Sciences, Zhejiang University, Hangzhou, Zhejiang and 2College of Life . The ashwin gene, originally identified in Xenopus laevis, was found to be expressed first in the neural plate and later in the embryonic brain, eyes, and spinal cord. Functional studies of ashwin suggest that it participates in cell survival and anteroposterior patterning. Furthermore, ashwin is expressed zygotically in this species, which suggests that it participates in embryonic development.

Recent advances in genome editing using programmable nucleases have revolutionized gene targeting in various organisms. Successful gene knock-out has been shown in Xenopus, a widely used model organism, although a system enabling less mosaic knock-out in founder embryos (F0) needs to be explored in order to judge phenotypes in the F0 generation.

Apoptosis plays an important role in embryonic development. PNAS-4 has been demonstrated to induce apoptosis in several cancer cells.

In this study, we cloned Xenopus laevis PNAS-4 (xPNAS-4), which is homologous to the human PNAS-4 gene. Bioinformatics analysis for PNAS-4 indicated that xPNAS-4 shared % identity with human PNAS-4 and % with mouse PNAS The Cited by: 6.

The expression of ESR-4 and ESR-5 in early Xenopus embryos was determined by whole-mount in situ hybrid-ization (Fig. 2A–D). This analysis indicated that both genes are expressed exclusively in the paraxial meso-derm, in contrast to other Xenopus WRPW–bHLH genes that have sites of expression in both mesodermal and) Xenopus Xenopus embryos.
