Expression of MUL, a gene encoding a novel RBCC family ring-finger protein, in human and mouse embryogenesis

Mech Dev. 2001 Oct;108(1-2):221-5. doi: 10.1016/s0925-4773(01)00491-9.


We studied the expression of MUL, a gene encoding a novel member of the RING-B-Box-Coiled Coil family of zinc finger proteins that underlies the human inherited disorder, Mulibrey nanism. In early human and mouse embryogenesis MUL is expressed in dorsal root and trigeminal ganglia, liver and in epithelia of multiple tissues.
