Technical Data
Hlxb9, CT (Homeodomain Protein Hb9, Motor Neuron and Pancreas Homeobox 1, Novel Protein Similar to Vertebrate Homeo Box HB9 (HLXB9), mnx1, Dr.91917, hb9, CH211-266O5.2-001)
Motor neuron and pancreas homeobox 1 (mnx-1), previously known as Hb9, is a member of the mnx gene family, of which the mouse transcription factor Hb9 is a well-known member. Mouse Hb9 is necessary to the development of the pancreas, in initial morphogenesis and subsequent differentiation of beta cells. Zebrafish expression of mnx genes occurs in all three germ layers. Knockdown studies show that zebrafish mnx is necessary to the differentiation of beta cells but not the early morphogenesis of the pancreas. Mnx-1 is one of many genes involved in motor neuron regeneration in zebrafish.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.
