Identification of separate slow and fast muscle precursor cells in vivo, prior to somite formation.
We have examined the development of specific muscle fiber types in zebrafish axial muscle by labeling myogenic precursor cells with vital fluorescent dyes and following their subsequentExpand

Zebrafish smoothened functions in ventral neural tube specification and axon tract formation.
Sonic hedgehog (Shh) signaling patterns many vertebrate tissues. shh mutations dramatically affect mouse ventral forebrain and floor plate but produce minor defects in zebrafish. Zebrafish have twoExpand

Controlling morpholino experiments: don't stop making antisense
One of the most significant problems facing developmental biologists who do not work on an organism with well-developed genetics - and even for some who do - is how to inhibit the action of a gene ofExpand

Development and axonal outgrowth of identified motoneurons in the zebrafish
We have observed the development of live, fluorescently labeled motoneurons in the spinal cord of embryonic and larval zebrafish. There are 2 classes of motoneurons: primary and secondary. On eachExpand

A genetic linkage map for the zebrafish.
To facilitate molecular genetic analysis of vertebrate development, haploid genetics was used to construct a recombination map for the zebrafish Danio (Brachydanio) rerio. The map consists of 401Expand

Headwaters of the zebrafish — emergence of a new model vertebrate
The understanding of vertebrate development has advanced considerably in recent years, primarily due to the study of a few model organisms. The zebrafish, the newest of these models, has risen toExpand

Pathway selection by growth cones of identified motoneurones in live zebra fish embryos
How is the adult pattern of connections between motoneurones and the muscles that they innervate established during vertebrate development? Populations of motoneurones are thought to follow one ofExpand

Genetic analysis of melanophore development in zebrafish embryos.
Vertebrate pigment cells are derived from neural crest, a tissue that also forms most of the peripheral nervous system and a variety of ectomesenchymal cell types. Formation of pigment cells fromExpand

Identified motoneurons and their innervation of axial muscles in the zebrafish
The organization of spinal cord motoneurons and their innervation of axial (white) muscles in the zebrafish were studied. Motoneurons can be divided into 2 classes, primary and secondary, on theExpand

The zebrafish colourless gene regulates development of non-ectomesenchymal neural crest derivatives.
Neural crest forms four major categories of derivatives: pigment cells, peripheral neurons, peripheral glia, and ectomesenchymal cells. Some early neural crest cells generate progeny of severalExpand
