Dynamic somite cell rearrangements lead to distinct waves of myotome growth
The myogenic precursors responsible for muscle growth in amniotes develop from the dermomyotome, an epithelium at the external surface of the somite. In teleosts, the myogenic precursors responsibleExpand

Hedgehog signaling is required for commitment but not initial induction of slow muscle precursors.
In zebrafish, skeletal muscle precursors can adopt at least three distinct fates: fast, non-pioneer slow, or pioneer slow muscle fibers. Slow muscle fibers develop from adaxial cells and depend onExpand

The teleost dermomyotome
Recent work in teleosts has renewed interest in the dermomyotome, which was initially characterized in the late 19th century. We review the evidence for the teleost dermomyotome, comparing it to theExpand

Jagged-Notch signaling ensures dorsal skeletal identity in the vertebrate face
The development of the vertebrate face relies on the regionalization of neural crest-derived skeletal precursors along the dorsoventral (DV) axis. Here we show that Jagged-Notch signaling ensuresExpand

Regulation and function of odd-paired in Tribolium segmentation
The pair-rule gene odd-paired (opa) is required for the patterning of alternate segment boundaries in the early Drosophila embryo. Mutant phenotypes of opa display a typical pair-rule phenotype inExpand

Embryological manipulations in the developing Xenopus inner ear reveal an intrinsic role for Wnt signaling in dorsal–ventral patterning
Background: The inner ear develops from an ectodermal thickening known as the otic placode into a complex structure that is asymmetrical along both the anterior–posterior (A‐P) and dorsal–ventralExpand

Expression of teneurin-m/odd Oz during segmentation in the beetle Tribolium castaneum.
The pair-rule gene teneurin-m/odd Oz (ten-m/odz) is required for the patterning of alternate segment boundaries in the early Drosophila embryo. Mutant phenotypes of ten-m/odz display a typicalExpand

Foxi1 promotes late-stage pharyngeal pouch morphogenesis through ectodermal Wnt4a activation.
The pharyngeal pouches are a series of epithelial outgrowths of the foregut endoderm. Pharyngeal pouches segment precursors of the vertebrate face into pharyngeal arches and pattern the facialExpand

Structure and function of AGAMOUS in a basal eudicot
tissues that form in either singlemutant. Thusntl and spt are required for formation of all posterior mesoderm. To identify T-box downstream targets for functional analysis, the lab performed aExpand
