Expressed in developing gut endoderm, cardiac progenitors and heart. Expression restricted to the very narrow development period between stages 8.0 and 11.5 dpc. First detected at 8.0 dpc in the endoderm of the lateral walls and lip of the forming foregut pocket, directly juxtaposed to cardiogenic mesoderm. At 8.5 dpc, expressed in the forming pharynx, predominantly in its lateral aspects where pouches will form. From 8.5 to 11.5 dpc, expressed in the ventrolateral endoderm of all forming pouches, as well as in juxtaposed arch ectoderm and mesenchyme. Expression levels decrease as pouches matured. Also expressed in the ventral hindgut endoderm from 9.5 dpc and in a short segment at the foregut-midgut junction spanning the proximal parts of the common bile and pancreatic ducts.2 Publications

<p>The checksum is a form of redundancy check that is calculated from the sequence. It is useful for tracking sequence updates.</p> <p>It should be noted that while, in theory, two different sequences could have the same checksum value, the likelihood that this would happen is extremely low.</p> <p>However UniProtKB may contain entries with identical sequences in case of multiple genes (paralogs).</p> <p>The checksum is computed as the sequence 64-bit Cyclic Redundancy Check value (CRC64) using the generator polynomial: x<sup>64</sup> + x<sup>4</sup> + x<sup>3</sup> + x + 1. The algorithm is described in the ISO 3309 standard. </p> <p class="publication">Press W.H., Flannery B.P., Teukolsky S.A. and Vetterling W.T.<br /> <strong>Cyclic redundancy and other checksums</strong><br /> <a href="http://www.nrbook.com/b/bookcpdf.php">Numerical recipes in C 2nd ed., pp896-902, Cambridge University Press (1993)</a>)</p> Checksum:iDBF8740A39CC0805
