Fgfr2 gene expression
Fgfr2 (Fibroblast growth factor receptor 2) – MGI gene detail
Description: Fgfr2 is expressed in the palatal epithelium along the AP axis throughout development, including the oral and nasal epithelia and in the MEE. It is also expressed in the nasal mesenchyme at E13.5 only in the posterior region of the palatal shelf.
