  • BMP-4 is a transforming growth factor beta (TGF- beta) superfamily member which plays important roles in various developmental processes in vertebrate embryogenesis. In this study the expression pattern of BMP-4 was examined during early chick and quail embryonic development. Transcripts were found in the lateral ridges of the neural plate during neurulation and in dorsal regions of the neural tube after its closure along the whole length of the neural axis. To investigate the role of BMP-4… CONTINUE READING
