  Fig. 1. Rfx2 is expressed in ciliated tissues. (A) Early expression of Rfx2 in epidermis. (B) Rfx2 is expressed in the neural plate. Dorsal view. (B′) (C) Sagittal sections showed that Rfx2 is expressed in the gastrocoel roof plate (GRP) (arrows). BP: blastopore. (D) Transverse section view revealed robust Rfx2 expression in the neural tube. (E) Rfx2 is expressed in the neural tube. Dorsal view. (F) Rfx2 is expressed in otic vesicles and kidneys. (G) Punctate expression of Rfx2 in the epidermis. (H) Closer view of epidermal Rfx2 expression in (G). (I) Epidermal ciliated cells are observed by staining with α-tubulin. Ciliated cells are co-localized with Rfx2 in situ pattern in (H).
