The mesenchymal factor, FGF10, initiates and maintains the outgrowth of the chick limb bud through interaction with FGF8, an apical ectodermal factor.
Vertebrate limb formation has been known to be initiated by a factor(s) secreted from the lateral plate mesoderm. In this report, we provide evidence that a member of the fibroblast growth factorExpand

Pitx2, a Bicoid-Type Homeobox Gene, Is Involved in a Lefty-Signaling Pathway in Determination of Left-Right Asymmetry
Signaling molecules such as Activin, Sonic hedgehog, Nodal, Lefty, and Vg1 have been found to be involved in determination of left-right (L-R) asymmetry in the chick, mouse, or frog. However, aExpand

Correlation of wing-leg identity in ectopic FGF-induced chimeric limbs with the differential expression of chick Tbx5 and Tbx4.
It has been reported that members of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family can induce additional limb formation in the flank of chick embryos. The phenotype of the ectopic limb depends on theExpand

Mechanism of asymmetric ovarian development in chick embryos
In most animals, the gonads develop symmetrically, but most birds develop only a left ovary. A possible role for estrogen in this asymmetric ovarian development has been proposed in the chick, butExpand

Asymmetric expression of antivin/lefty1 in the early chick embryo
Mammalian lefty and zebrafish antivin, highly related to lefty, are shown to be expressed asymmetrically and involved in the specification of the left body side of early embryos. We isolated a chickExpand

Mesonephric FGF signaling is associated with the development of sexually indifferent gonadal primordium in chick embryos.
The gonad as well as the reproductive tracts, kidney, and adrenal cortex are derived from the intermediate mesoderm. In addition, the intermediate mesoderm forms the mesonephros. Although theExpand

Mesonephric Wnt Signaling Associate with a Formation of an Adreno‐Gonadal Primordium in Chick Embryos
The adrenal cortex as well as the reproductive tract, kidney, and gonad is derived from the intermediate mesoderm. In addition, the mesonephros essential for the early adrenal development alsoExpand

Preparation and Characterization of (PrBCO/NdBCO/PrBCO//YBCO single crystal) Multilayers
The a-axis oriented PrBa2Cu3O7-δ. films and PrBa2Cu3O7-δ. /NdBa2Cu3O72δ/PrBa2Cu3O7-δ multilayers were deposited on (001) YBa2Cu3O7-δ and (001) NdBa2Cu3O7-δ single-crystal substrates using a DC-95MHZExpand
Growth Factors from Mesonephros Implicated in Gonadal and Adrenal Differentiation
The mesonephros is a tissue formed transiently as a basement structure of early stages of the gonad and adrenal cortex, and thus it has been believed that the mesonephros is strictly related toExpand
