During segmentation of the vertebrate hindbrain, a distinct population of boundary cells forms at the interface between each segment. Little is known regarding mechanisms that regulate the formation or functions of these cells. We have investigated a potential role of Notch signaling and find that in the zebrafish hindbrain, radical fringe is expressed in(More)
BACKGROUND Notch signaling is an evolutionarily conserved developmental pathway. Zebrafish mind bomb (mib) mutants carry mutations on mib gene, which encodes a RING E3 ligase required for Notch activation via Delta/Jagged ubiquitylation and internalization. METHODOLOGY/PRINCIPAL FINDINGS We examined the mib mutants for defects in pancreas development(More)
In vertebrates, hindbrain is subdivided into seven segments termed rhombomeres and the interface between each rhombomere forms the boundary. Similar to the D/V boundary formation in Drosophila, Notch activation has been shown to regulate the segregation of rhombomere boundary cells. Here we further explored the function of Notch signaling in the formation(More)
