Gene transcription in the zebrafish embryo: regulators and networks

, : Gene transcription in the zebrafish embryo: regulators and networks. Briefings in Functional Genomics 13(2): 131-143

The precise spatial and temporal control of gene expression is a key process in the development, maintenance and regeneration of the vertebrate body. A substantial proportion of vertebrate genomes encode genes that control the transcription of the genetic information into mRNA. The zebrafish is particularly well suited to investigate gene regulatory networks underlying the control of gene expression during development due to the external development of its transparent embryos and the increasingly sophisticated tools for genetic manipulation available for this model system. We review here recent data on the analysis of cis-regulatory modules, transcriptional regulators and their integration into gene regulatory networks in the zebrafish, using the developing spinal cord as example.

Fuzzy set ordination is employed to evaluate sites on the basis of their suitability for particular tree species. The technique orders sites along an axis defined by the presences and absences of a given species of interest. A rationale is given i...
