Abstract We have identified by tilling a Xenopus tropicalis rax mutant in which the gene has a premature stop codon before the homeobox domain. The rax gene is essential for eye development and has been identified as a causative gene for human ocular malformations such as anophthalmia and microphthalmia. T .. [more]
Description RNA was isolated from Xenopus tropicalis rax mutants and wild type siblings. This was used to generate mutant and wild type RNA libraries for solexa sequencing. The sequencing data will be compared to isolate changes that may be caused by loss of rax activity. The RNA samples were extracted with .. [more]
