Abstract

We report on the expression pattern of a novel EGF- containing gene named Maeg. RNA in situ studies indicate that Maeg is first activated during specification of the early lateral dermatome, and continues to be expressed in all the dermatome derivatives as the dermis of the trunk, the hair follicles, and the mesenchyme of the cranio-facial region.
