A series of stages for development of the embryo of the zebrafish, Danio (Brachydanio) rerio is described, providing for flexibility and continued evolution of the staging series as the authors learn more about development in this species.
Origin and organization of the zebrafish fate map.
We have analyzed lineages of cells labeled by intracellular injection of tracer dye during early zebrafish development to learn when cells become allocated to particular fates during development, and…
The zebrafish midblastula transition.
During the several cycles after the MBT begins, cycle length is correlated with the reciprocal of the blastomere volume, suggesting a continuation of cell cycle regulation by the nucleocytoplasmic ratio during an interval that the authors term the 'MBT period'.
Organization of hindbrain segments in the zebrafish embryo
Two endothelin 1 effectors, hand2 and bapx1, pattern ventral pharyngeal cartilage and the jaw joint
Together the results reveal two critical edn1 effectors that pattern the vertebrate jaw: hand2 specifies ventral pharyngeal cartilage of the lower jaw and bapx1 specifies the jaw joint.
A homeobox gene essential for zebrafish notochord development
It is shown that floating head is the zebrafish homologue of Xnot, a homeobox gene expressed in the amphibian organizer and notochord, and it is proposed that flh regulates notochords precursor cell fate.
A pair of Sox: distinct and overlapping functions of zebrafish sox9 co-orthologs in craniofacial and pectoral fin development
Analysis of mutant phenotypes strongly supports the interpretation that ancestral gene functions partitioned spatially and temporally between Sox9 co-orthologs, and shows that sox9 helps regulate other early crest genes, including foxd3, sox10, snai1b and crestin.
Cell movements during epiboly and gastrulation in zebrafish.
Epiboly, involution and convergent extension in zebrafish involve the same kinds of cellular rearrangements as in amphibians, and they occur during comparable stages of embryogenesis.
FGF3 and FGF8 mediate a rhombomere 4 signaling activity in the zebrafish hindbrain.
It is shown that rhombomere 4 (r4) functions as an early-differentiating signaling center in the zebrafish hindbrain and a crucial role for FGF-mediated inter-rhombomeres signaling in promoting early hindbrain patterning is demonstrated.
