Pax7 plays critical roles in development of brain, spinal cord, neural crest and skeletal muscle. As a sequence-specific DNA-binding transcription factor, the direct functional role played by Pax7 during development is the selection of target genes. To date, an accurate description of the function of this transcription factor has not been obtained through an understanding of its target genes. To elucidate the direct developmental functions of Pax7, this research has sought to identify genes targeted by Pax7 during mouse embryonic development.
