Three different Pax6 promoters - P0, P1, and Pα - show differential activity in the developing eye and spinal cord. To examine promoter usage during forebrain development, we performed in situ hybridization and reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction to detect transcripts initiated from each promoter. Promoter-specific transcripts are expressed within subdomains of total Pax6 expression, but differ from one another in their spatial localization and expression over time. Additionally, we identified a novel P0-initiated transcript and detected a developmentally regulated antisense transcript. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ireland Ltd. All rights reserved.
