Gene

Rfx4

Organism
Mus musculus (Mouse)
Status
Reviewed - Annotation score: 5 out of 5- Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Disruption phenotypei

Mice with an insertion of a cardiac-specific epoxygenase transgene into an intron in the Rfx4 locus develop head swelling and rapid neurological decline in young adulthood, and have marked hydrocephalus of the lateral and third ventricles. Interruption of two alleles results in profound failure of dorsal midline brain structure formation and perinatal death. Interruption of a single allele prevents formation of the subcommissural organ, a structure important for cerebrospinal fluid flow through the aqueduct of Sylvius and results in congenital hydrocephalus.2 Publications

Expressioni

Tissue specificityi

Isoform 1 is brain-specific. Isoform 2 is testis-specific. Isoform 1 is highly expressed in the suprachiasmatic nucleus (at protein level), the central pacemaker site of the circadian clock.2 Publications

Developmental stagei

At E8.5, detected in most of the neural plate but is excluded from the presumptive forebrain region. At E9.5, its expression is mostly restricted to two large regions, the caudal diencephalon/mesencephalon and the spinal cord. By E10.5, is present throughout the neural tube, and it is also detected in the cerebral cortex. It is also strongly expressed in the developing subcommissural organ (SCO) from E14.5 to birth.1 Publication

Inductioni

Isoform 1 is induced in a subjective night-specific manner.1 Publication
