Montavon T, Soshnikova N. Hox gene regulation and timing in embryogenesis. Semin Cell Dev Biol. 2014;34:76-84 pubmed publisher
..We review the current understanding of the mechanisms operating during activation, maintenance and silencing of Hox gene expression in these various contexts, and discuss the evolutionary significance of their genomic organization. ..

..Furthermore, adult ISCs from Id2-deficient mice display a distinct transcriptional signature, supporting an essential role for Id2 in the correct specification of ISCs. ..

..We further show that the early epithelial progenitors have different capacity to generate Lgr5+ ISC progenitors and Axin2+ early precursors display the highest potential. ..
