, exist in mouse and humans (CDX1, CDX2 and CDX4
) and regulate anterior-posterior patterning [70, 71].
Possibly in cooperation with the trans-acting POU homeodomain protein Oct1, OBS play a role in regulating the promoter expression in genes such as Cdx4
in Xenopus laevis (ReeceHoyes et al.
The cdx is selected from the cdx family and includes cdx1, cdx2, or cdx4
. The cdx may be a wild type protein appropriate for the species from which the cells are derived, or a mutant form of the protein.
