Technical Data
Gsc, CT (ZGSC, Homeobox Protein Goosecoid)
The homeobox gene goosecoid (gsc) is expressed in the dorsal blastoporal lip of the Xenopus gastrula and is involved in organizing the dorsoventral axis of the frog embryo. The zebrafish homologue of gsc is expressed in two independent phases in the embryo. Gsc shows overlapping areas of expression with no tail (ntl). However, gsc- and ntl- expressing cells are eventually separated during development. Studies of ntl mutants suggest that gsc function is independent of ntl function within the embryo.Coexpression of FoxA3 and gsc at the dorsal blastula margin is essential to the characterization of anterior neural fate.
