Abstract

The expression of a gene termed Dri 42, a differentiation-related gene originally identified from intestine and a gene encoding phosphatidic acid phosphatase 2b isoform, was localized in developing and matured rat brains by in situ hybridization histochemical analysis. The gene expression was dominant in the ventricular germinal zone without significant expression in the intermediate, mantle and marginal zones throughout embryonic brain and spinal cord. The dominant expression in the ventricular germinal zone was maintained at P0 and P7, but it markedly decreased at later postnatal stages, while persistently high expression was detected in Bergmann glial cells of the cerebellar Purkinje cell layer throughout the postnatal development.
