Fgf signaling components are associated with muscles and tendons during limb development
Muscle‐tendon interactions are important for the establishment of a functional musculoskeletal system. Fgf4 and Fgf8 are expressed in muscle and tendon boundary regions during limb development,Expand

Stable, conditional, and muscle‐fiber‐specific expression of electroporated transgenes in chick limb muscle cells
Limb muscle formation is spread out over time and, consequently, muscle cells are not easy to target at any particular stages. We aimed to design a technique to study gene function in the differentExpand

Signals regulating tendon formation during chick embryonic development
Tendons are collagen‐rich structures that link muscle to cartilage. By using quail–chick chimeras, it has been shown that tendon and cartilage cells originate from the same mesodermic compartment,Expand

Fgf8 transcripts are located in tendons during embryonic chick limb development
Fibroblast growth factor 8 (Fgf8) is a secreted growth factor involved in the initiation, outgrowth and patterning of vertebrate limbs (Genes Dev. 12 (1998) 1571). In this paper, we present a newExpand

Comprehensive analysis of fibroblast growth factor receptor expression patterns during chick forelimb development.
Specific interactions between fibroblast growth factors (Fgf1-22) and their tyrosine kinase receptors (FgfR1-4) activate different signalling pathways that are responsible for the biologicalExpand

HB-GAM/pleiotrophin: localization of mRNA and protein in the chicken developing leg.
The heparin-binding growth-associated molecule HB-GAM (also named pleiotrophin) is a developmentally-regulated protein that belongs to a new family of heparin-binding molecules with putativeExpand

The RNA-binding protein Rbm24 is transiently expressed in myoblasts and is required for myogenic differentiation during vertebrate development
RNA-binding proteins (RBP) contribute to gene regulation through post-transcriptional events. Despite the important roles demonstrated for several RBP in regulating skeletal myogenesis in vitro, veryExpand

CRP2 transcript expression pattern in embryonic chick limb
Members of the cysteine-rich protein (CRP) family are evolutionary conserved proteins that have been implicated in the processes of cell proliferation and differentiation via the cytoskeletalExpand

In addition to being a marker for muscle connective tissue, Odd skipped-related 2 (OSR2) is expressed in differentiated muscle cells during chick development
The zinc finger transcription factor, Odd skipped-related 2 (OSR2) is a recognized marker of connective tissue in chick embryos. OSR2 gain- and loss-of-function experiments indicate a role inExpand

EGR1 Transcription Factor is a Multifaceted Regulator of Matrix Production in Tendons and Other Connective Tissues
Although the transcription factor EGR1 is known as NGF1-A, TIS8, Krox24, zif/268, and ZENK, it still has many fewer names than biological functions. A broad range of signals induce Egr1 geneExpand
