Fgf signaling induces posterior neuroectoderm independently of Bmp signaling inhibition.

Abstract

Whereas according to the neural default model, neural specification is induced by extracellular inhibitors of bone morphogenetic proteins (Bmps), the role of fibroblast growth factors (Fgfs) during neural induction is heavily debated. Here, we show that, in zebrafish embryos, Bmps and Fgfs play differential roles during the induction and patterning of the… (More)
