At 6.0-6.5 dpc, expressed throughout the egg cylinder with highest expression in the epiblast. At 9.5-10.5 dpc, expressed in the lateral sclerotome and in mesenchymal cells of the limb buds and body wall. At 11.0 dpc, expressed in a metameric pattern extending along the length of the embryo. By 11.5 dpc, expression in the developing vertebrae and invertebral disks is extended caudally. High expression was seen in precursors of the ribs and bones of the limbs. Expression in progenitors of the ribs and the axial and appendicular skeleton becomes down-regulated when ossification is initiated.
