I am characterizing the Nk2 specific domain (SD) in the Nkx2.2 gene. Nkx2.2 is necessary for proper islet development in the pancreas as shown by previous work in the lab, however, the function of the SD domain is not known. My work is continuing to characterize this domain and its interaction with other proteins to further understand its role in pancreas development.
