Nucleoside di-phosphate kinase enzyme (NDPK) isoforms, encoded by the nm23 family
of genes, may be involved in various cellular differentiation and proliferation
processes. We have therefore analyzed the expression of nm23-M1, -M2, -M3, and
-M4 during embryonic mouse development. In situ hybridization data has revealed
the differential expression of nm23 mRNA during organogenesis. Whereas nm23-M1
and -M3 are preferentially expressed in the nervous and sensory systems, nm23-M2
mRNA is found ubiquitously. Irrespective of the developmental state studied,
nm23-M4 mRNA is only expressed at low levels in a few embryonic organs. In the
cerebellum and cerebral cortex, nm23-M1, -M2, and -M3 are present in the neuronal
differentiation layer, whereas nm23-M4 mRNA is distributed in the proliferating
layer. Thus, nm23 mRNA is differentially expressed, and the diverse NDPK isoforms
are sequentially involved in various developmental processes.
