Pitx2 gene expression
Pitx2 (Paired-like homeodomain transcription factor 2 / Pituitary homeobox 2) – MGI gene detail
Description: At E13.5, Pitx2 is expressed in the palatal epithelium along the AP axis. At E14.5, Pitx2 is expressed in both the epithelium and the osteogenic mesenchyme along the AP axis.
