The thyroid gland of vertebrates is considered to be homologous to the endostyle of non-vertebrate chordates (cephalochordates, urochordates), a key character for understanding the origin and evolution of the chordate body plan. In lampreys, the larval endostyle transforms into an adult thyroid gland during metamorphosis, reflecting evolutionary changes that occurred in the vertebrate lineage. Focussing on thyroid-like cells in the endostyle, we here relate morphologically visible steps of… Expand
Lamprey metamorphosis: Thyroid hormone signaling in a basal vertebrate
TLDR
THs have a dual role in lampreys where high TH levels promote larval feeding and growth and then at the onset of metamorphosis TH levels decrease rapidly; at this time the relatively low TH levels function via TRs in a fashion similar to that of other metamorphosing vertebrates. Expand
The history of a developmental stage: Metamorphosis in chordates
TLDR
A unifying definition of the larva‐to‐adult transition is proposed, based on the conservation of the role of THs and some of their derivatives as the main regulators of metamorphosis, which states that all chordates have a homologous meetamorphosis stage during their postembryonic development.

This review examines the basal chordate, amphioxus, as a simple model for providing insights into the development and evolution of the vertebrates, with which it shares many features, including aExpand
New Insights into Vertebrate Thyroid Hormone Receptor Evolution
TLDR
It is shown that the lamprey genome contains two additional TR sequences, which suggest that major evolutionary shifts occurred at the receptor level just when the modern synthesis of thyroid hormone was established during early vertebrate evolution. Expand
A branching morphogenesis program governs embryonic growth of the thyroid gland
TLDR
It is shown that branching-like morphogenesis is a driving force to attain final size of the embryonic thyroid gland in mice and provides clues to aid understanding of how the endocrine thyroid gland once evolved from an exocrine ancestor present in the invertebrate endostyle. Expand
Development and Organization of the Lamprey Telencephalon with Special Reference to the GABAergic System
TLDR
This study summarizes the organization of the adult lamprey telencephalon by analyzing the main proposed conceptions, including the available data on the expression pattern of some developmental regulatory genes which are of importance for building its adult shape. Expand
Structural and ultrastructural differentiation of the thyroid gland during embryogenesis in the grass snake Natrix natrix L. (Lepidosauria, Serpentes).
TLDR
Structural and ultrastructural studies of the developing thyroid gland in embryos of the grass snake Natrix natrix L. are reported on, finding that at the time of oviposition, the thyroid primordium occupied its final position in the embryos. Expand

  • 2014
TLDR
A deeper view into the range of evolutional variabilities and also flexibilities within the thyroid axis will most likely increase the understanding of the molecular defects and their potential treatment in the current human thyroid system. Expand
Ultrastructural studies of cilia formation during thyroid gland differentiation in grass snake embryos.
TLDR
It can be concluded that the ciliogenesis occurred in two waves and that new centrioles duplicated via centriolar pathways. Expand
An atlas of anterior hox gene expression in the embryonic sea lamprey head: hox-code evolution in vertebrates
TLDR
Many similarities in Hox expression between lamprey and gnathostome species are found, particularly in rhombomeric domains during hindbrain segmentation and in the cranial neural crest, enabling inference of aspects of Hoxexpression in the ancestral vertebrate embryonic head. Expand

TLDR
Investigating the molecular mechanisms involved in the formation and function of the endostyle and coexpression of these genes in amphioxus suggests that regulation of TPO by TTF-1 was present in the common ancestor of cephalochordates (acraniates) and craniates. Expand
Transformation of the endostyle of the anadromous sea lamprey, Petromyzon marinus L., during metamorphosis. I. Light microscopy and autoradiography with 125I1.
TLDR
Routine light microscopy and autoradiography with 125 I were used to examine the transformation in structure and iodine-binding capacity of the endostyle throughout metamorphosis in the anadromous sea lamprey, suggesting that the thyroglobulin which is synthesized or released by metamorphosing lamprey may have different chemical properties than thyrogrobulin of the adult.

The present results help to support homologies between the Amphioxus endostyle and the vertebrate thyroid gland and between the amphioxus cerebral vesicle andThe vertebrate diencephalic forebrain. Expand
The homeobox gene Hex is required in definitive endodermal tissues for normal forebrain, liver and thyroid formation.
TLDR
Results demonstrate that Hex function is essential in definitive endoderm for normal development of the forebrain, liver and thyroid gland and chimeric embryos composed of Hex(-/-) cells developing within a wild-type visceral endODerm show forebrain defects indicating that Hex is required in the definitiveendoderm.

TLDR
The proportion of embryos exhibiting immunostained thyrocytes increased progressively from 43 to 52 dpf, at which stage all embryos had T4- and T3-immunostained thyroid tissue, and this stage was also coincident with a marked increase in the number of pituitary thyrotrophs. Expand
