Abstract

Numerous genes are expressed and regulated during the development of the pancreas in zebrafish embryos, and the mechanism is currently being researched. Although the cellular locations and times of pdx-1 and insulin expression are known in the developing pancreas, less is known about other genes such as foxa3. This project analyzed foxa3 temporal and spatial expression using a GFP reporter under the control of the foxa3 promoter.
