Gbx1 is involved in feather-bud formation.
Retinoic acid inhibits feather-bud formation, induces transdifferentiation of epidermis to mucosal epithelium, and increases Gbx1 expression.
Transfection of the epidermis with Gbx1 cDNA induces elongation of the feather bud, but does not induce transdifferentiation.
