We have isolated the zebrafish ziro7 gene, a novel, divergent member of the Iroquois family. ziro7 is expressed at early epiboly stages in the dorsal half of the zebrafish embryo, with a higher level in the dorso-lateral margin. From mid-gastrulation stages onward, ziro7 is expressed in a large transversal stripe in the future neural plate, which subsequently divides into thinner stripes located in the diencephalon, midbrain and hindbrain.
