Plentiful awn variations have been discovered in hexaploid wheats, while less were observed in diploid and tetraploid wheats. However, a double ditelosomic line of 6B (dDT6B) in tetraploid wheat cultivar DR147 specifically displayed awnless phenotype, which arised from the presence of awning inhibitor B2 located in telosome 6BL derived from hexaploid wheat(More)
The isthmic organiser located at the midbrain-hindbrain boundary (MHB) is the crucial developmental signalling centre responsible for patterning mesencephalic and metencephalic regions of the vertebrate brain. Formation and maintenance of the MHB is characterised by a hierarchical program of gene expression initiated by fibroblast growth factor 8 (Fgf8),(More)
Congenital and progressive hearing impairment is a common distressing disease. The progressive dominant hearing loss DFNA28 in human is associated with a frameshift mutation of Grainyhead-like 2 (GRHL2) but its etiology and mechanism remain unknown. Here we report a zebrafish grhl2b(T086) mutant line in which grhl2b expression is interrupted by an insertion(More)
The zebrafish sensory posterior lateral line (pLL) has become an attractive model for studying collective cell migration and cell morphogenesis. Recent studies have indicated that chemokine, Wnt/β-catenin, Fgf, and Delta-Notch signaling pathways participate in regulating pLL development. However, it remains unclear whether TGFβ signaling pathway is involved(More)
