paired box gene 6


Pax6 is a transcription factor that was first identified as a member of paired box (Pax) family protein and functions as the master gene controlling eye development. The mammalian Pax6 locus encodes at least three isoforms, the “canonical” Pax6, Pax6(5a), and Pax6(ΔPD). Pax6 is also involved in various phenomena during development of the central nervous system, including patterning of the neural tube, migration of neurons, and formation of neural circuits. During development, Pax6 is expressed in neuroepithelial cells in the ventricular zone of the brain primordium and regulates proliferation and differentiation through the control of expression of different downstream factors such as FABP7 and Neurogenin2. On the other hand, Pax6 is expressed in neural stem/progenitor cells in the subgaranular zone of the hIPocampal dentate gyrus and the subventricular zone (SVZ) of the lateral ventricule throughout adult. Furthermore, intense expression of Pax6 is detected in SVZ-derived immature migrating neurons, cerebellar granule cells, precerebellar neurons and astrocytes in the cerebral cortex and spinal cord.
