runx2 (RUNX family transcription factor 2) gene expression in Xenopus laevis embryo, assayed via in sitiu hybridization, NF stage 39 embryo, ventral view, anterior up. (note the cement gland has been removed). Transcripts are expressed in the future ceratohyal (CH) and palatoquadrate cartilages ( which form the upper jaw). The latter is clearly divided into a posterior sub-ocular arc (SA) and anterior quadratocranial commissure (QC), which connects to the suprarostral plate dorsally. There is a small flange of staining off of the palatoquadrate in both preparations that reveals the future Meckel's cartilage (asterisk).
