Summation

As inferred from mouse embryos, HOXA2 expression is directly driven by EGR2 (KROX20) in rhombomeres 3 and 5 (r3, r5) of the hindbrain and by HOXB1 in r4. EGR2 binds sites in the 5' region of the HOXA2 gene. HOXB1 sets up the correct EGR2 expression domain in r3 and thereby indirectly regulates HOXA2 in this region. (HOXA2 is the only HOX gene active in r2. An unknown activator, possibly a transcription factor of the SOX family, may be involved in expression in r2.)
