Normal eye development requires a complex series of morphological movements and ocular patterning with aberrant eye development resulting in birth defects and retinal dystrophies. Eleven percent of paediatric blindness is caused by microphthalmia (small eyes), anophthalmia (no eyes) and coloboma...
Background Pbx genes encode TALE class homeodomain transcription factors that pattern the developing neural tube, pancreas, and blood. Within the hindbrain, Pbx cooperates with Hox proteins to regulate rhombomere segment identity. Pbx cooperates with Eng to regulate midbrain-hindbrain boundary...
The Role of Forkhead Box Transcription Factors in Zebrafish Ocular Development and the Superior Ocular FissureDownload
Ocular development is a tightly orchestrated process that is dependent upon precise environmental and genetic factors. Disruption of this can result in microphthalmia, anophthalmia and coloboma (MAC), which is a spectrum of congenital ocular disease with lifelong consequences affecting sight. In...
