GeneDescription The gene encodes a homeodomain transcription factor called as Floating head (Flh). The Flh regulates expression of two basic helix loop helix (bHLH) transcription factor encoding genes, ash1a (achaete/scute homologue 1a) and neurogenin1 (ngn1), in epiphysial neural progenitors required for generation of neurones in the zebrafish epiphysis.
GeneFunction Halpern et al. (1995) studied the cell-autonomous shift from axial to paraxial mesodermal development in zebrafish floating head mutants wherein they suggested that wild-type floating head provides an essential step in maintaining, rather than initiating, development of notochord-forming axial mesoderm.Talbot WS et al. (1995) were the first to show that floating head is the zebrafish homologue of Znot, a homeobox gene expressed in the amphibian organizer and notochord. They proposed that flh regulates notochord precursor cell fate. Danos MC et al. (1996) showed that floating head (Znot) encodes putative transcription factors that are expressed in the organizer and notochord, structures which regulate dorsoventral and anterioposterior development in vertebrate embryos.Melby AE et al. (1997) investigated the role of flh in regulating notochord development in detail. They showed that flh positively regulates its own expression and flh+ function is specifically required to maintain flh expression in hypoblast cells. They also hypothesized that ntl+ is required for the proper convergence movements of flh-expressing cells.Fouquet B. (1997) suggested that signals from the notochord may guide angioblasts in the fashioning of the dorsal aorta which implies an indirect role of flh in regulation of this process.Massai I et al. (1997) show that the homeobox containing gene floating head (flh) is required for neurogenesis to proceed in the epiphysis. They demonstrated that the epiphysial phenotype of masterblind (mbl)- embryos is mediated by ectopic Flh activity. They proposed a role for flh in linking the signaling pathways that regulate regional patterning to the signaling pathways that regulate neurogenesis.Amacher et al. (1998) revealed that repression of spadetail function by floating head is critical to promote notochord fate and prevent midline muscle development, and that enviromental signals can override the predisposition of floating head mutant midline cells to make muscle cells.Tongiorgi E . (1999) showed that flh regulates notochord development which in turn is a key factor regulating the expression of extracellular matrix molecule tenascin-C during embryonic development. They postulated that flh has a role in somite patterning as they show defective tn-C expression in somite of flh mutants.Gothilf Yet al. (1999) showed that flh regulation is closely associated with zebrafish serotonin N-acetyltransferase-2 which is a marker for development of pineal photoreceptors and circadian clock function.Majumdar A et al. (2000) investigated the role of flh in glomerular differentiation in the absence of the notochord and vascularization from the dorsal aorta.Biemar et al. (2001) showed that flh , necessary for differentiation of chordamesoderm to notochord, is indirectly responsible for proper pancreas development, but not required for differentiation of pancreatic cell fates.Cau E et al. (2003) in order to elucidate the pathways regulating epiphysial neurogenesis showed that show that Flh is required to maintain the expression of ash1a and to initiate expression of ngn1 and neuroD (all three are bHLH transcription factors expressed in hypophysis). They stated that flh has additional activities other than regulating ash1a and of ngn1 as flh mtant epiphysis could account for most of the neuorgenesis defects. Their results confirmed that Flh functions as a prepattern gene, linking patterning to neurogenesis, and reveal a crucial role for two bHLH proteins, acting downstream of Flh, in the control of epiphysial neurogenesis.Snelson CD et al. (2008) studied flh mutants to identify their involvement in tbx2b transcription and found that flh regulates a separate program for pineal and parapineal development and is not required for tbx2b transcription
