Day 238 has 20 protein-coding genes (browser view) including JMJD1C (jumonji domain containing 1C).
The gene was named for the morphology produced by the normal neural groove and abnormal grooves on the neural plates of jmj mutant mice. The morphology resembles a cross, and “jumonji” means cruciform in Japanese.
Many jumonji-domain proteins work to regulate DNA epigenetically, but for many the function is unknown.
