Qualitative analysis of homeotic gene expression in the central nervous system of the Brd2-knockdown Danio rerio embryo

Brd2 is a member of the bromodomain-containing BET family of transcriptional co-regulators and is known to induce or repress transcription. The Drosophila homolog fs(1)h is known to control homeotic gene expression during development. In zebrafish, reduced levels of Brd2 result in morphological abno...
