Abstract

We report the expression of zebrafish lmo4 during the first 48 h of development. Like its murine ortholog, lmo4 is expressed in somitic mesoderm, branchial arches, otic vesicles, and limb (pectoral fin) buds. In addition, however, we report zebrafish lmo4 expression in the developing eye, cardiovascular tissue, and the neural plate and telencephalon. We demonstrate that expression in the rostral hindbrain requires acerebellar (ace/fgf8) and spiel ohne grenzen (spg/pou2) activity.
