Transcription factors affecting corneal development. Pax6 serves as a master regulator of eye development in association with a handful of other transcription factors. While the involvement of several transcription factors has been studied in early embryonic development of the eye, few studies have focused on postnatal maturation of the cornea. Embryonic (E) or postnatal (PN) developmental stages (in days) are shown on the left.
