EMX2

EMX2

A gene on chromosome 10q26.1 that encodes a transcription factor which, in co-operation with EMX1, generates the boundary between the roof and archipallium in the developing brain. EMX2 is expressed in embryonic and adult olfactory neuroepithelia, where it forms a complex with eukaryotic translation initiation factor 4E (eIF4E) and possibly regulates mRNA transport or translation. In the developing urogenital system, it is expressed in epithelia and is downregulated by HOXA1.

In the case of sturgeons, which have complex genomes, NGS allows the transcriptome analysis and gives information on possible differences between males and females in expression and presence of various genes (dmrt1, tra-1, wt1, lhx1, cyp19A1, fhl3, fem1a, gsdf, foxl2, ar, emx2, cyp17a1, etc.) that may be involved in the sexual development processes in different sturgeon species [7, 31-33].
