Development of oral and pharyngeal teeth in the medaka (Oryzias latipes): comparison of morphology and expression of eve1 gene.
Gnathostome teeth are one of the most promising models for developmental evolutionary studies, they are the most abundant organ in the fossil record and an excellent example of organogenesis. TeethExpand

Expression of Dlx genes during the development of the zebrafish pharyngeal dentition: evolutionary implications
SUMMARY In order to investigate similarities and differences in genetic control of development among teeth within and between species, we determined the expression pattern of all eight Dlx genes ofExpand

Activity of dlx5a/dlx6a regulatory elements during zebrafish GABAergic neuron development
During vertebrate forebrain formation, Dlx homeobox genes play essential roles in the differentiation, migration and survival of subpallial precursor cells that will later give rise to diverseExpand

Evolution of repeated structures along the body axis of jawed vertebrates, insights from the Scyliorhinus canicula Hox code
SUMMARY The Hox gene family encodes homeodomain‐containing transcription factors involved in the patterning of structures composed of repeated elements along the antero‐posterior axis of BilateraliaExpand

Comparison of the expression of medaka (Oryzias latipes) pitx genes with other vertebrates shows high conservation and a case of functional shuffling in the pituitary.
With the availability of an increasing number of whole genome sequences in chordates, exhaustive comparisons of multigene families become feasible. Relationships of orthology/paralogy can not only beExpand

The homology of odontodes in gnathostomes: insights from Dlx gene expression in the dogfish, Scyliorhinus canicula
BackgroundTeeth and tooth-like structures, together named odontodes, are repeated organs thought to share a common evolutionary origin. These structures can be found in gnathostomes at differentExpand

Low divergence in Dlx gene expression between dentitions of the medaka (Oryzias latipes) versus high level of expression shuffling in osteichtyans
SUMMARY Serially homologous structures are believed to originate from the redeployment of a genetic cascade in different locations of the body. Serial homologs may diverge at the genetic andExpand

Molecular footprinting of skeletal tissues in the catshark Scyliorhinus canicula and the clawed frog Xenopus tropicalis identifies conserved and derived features of vertebrate calcification
Understanding the evolutionary emergence and subsequent diversification of the vertebrate skeleton requires a comprehensive view of the diverse skeletal cell types found in distinct developmentalExpand

Heterogeneous Conservation of Dlx Paralog Co-Expression in Jawed Vertebrates
Background The Dlx gene family encodes transcription factors involved in the development of a wide variety of morphological innovations that first evolved at the origins of vertebrates or of theExpand

Functional conservation of a forebrain enhancer from the elephant shark (Callorhinchus milii ) in zebrafish and mice
BackgroundThe phylogenetic position of the elephant shark (Callorhinchus milii ) is particularly relevant to study the evolution of genes and gene regulation in vertebrates. Here we examine theExpand
