09-P023 Intermuscular tendons are essential for the development of vertebrate stomach
A new anatomical and functional domain in the vertebrate stomach is identified as being two intermuscular tendons closely associated with the visceral SMC structures, and it is demonstrated that the coordinated development of both tendon and smooth muscle domains is essential for the correct morphogenesis of the stomach.
Limb Muscle Formation Signals 917 Involvement of Muscle Connective Tissue in Muscle Patterning
The successive events involved in limb muscle formation during embryonic development are described, the properties of the key marker molecules are described and current knowledge of the signalling pathways involved is resumed.

This review covers the available data on the early steps of tendon formation in the limb and along the primary axis and the relationship with muscle morphogenesis will be highlighted.
Control of mesenchymal cell fate via application of FGF-8b in vitro
Developmental Mechanisms Linking Form and Function During Jaw Evolution
The results provide novel insights on molecular, cellular, and biomechanical mechanisms that couple musculoskeletal form and function during development and evolution.
Signaling Mechanisms Involved in the Induction and Maintenance of Secondary Cartilage on the Coronoid Process of the Mandible
This work examines the role of neural crest mesenchyme (NCM), which produces all jaw skeletal and connective tissues, in establishing species-specific pattern by transplanting NCM from chick to duck, and investigates links between jaw architecture and mechanical forces by examining motility and by using finite element modeling.


Muscle and tendon morphogenesis in the avian hind limb.
Comparison of muscle and tendon in the developing avian hind limb reveals that much of their morphogenesis is temporally and spatially closely associated, and later morphogenetic events, such as subdivision of muscle masses and segregation of tendon primordia into individual tendons, do require to various degrees reciprocal interactions between Muscle and tendon.

All prominent aspects of limb development were treated, i.e., initiation, patterning, differentiation and apoptosis, regeneration, evolution and clinical aspects in human at the 2000 International Limb Conference.
An experimental analysis of the developmental capacities of distal parts of avian leg buds.
The development, differentiation, and pattern formation of isolated distal parts of avian leg buds that had grown ectopically on the chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) or in the coelomic cavity were studied and the speed of migration of the myogenic cells can be considered to be constant.
Experimental analysis of the role of ECM in the patterning of the distal tendons of the developing limb bud.
Scleraxis: a basic helix-loop-helix protein that prefigures skeletal formation during mouse embryogenesis.
The expression pattern, DNA-binding properties and transcriptional activity of scleraxis suggest that it is a regulator of gene expression within mesenchymal cell lineages that give rise to cartilage and connective tissue.
Misexpression of Fgf-4 in the chick limb inhibits myogenesis by down-regulating Frek expression.
Overexpression of mouse Fgf-4 using a replication-competent retrovirus leads to a down-regulation of muscle markers followed by an inhibition of terminal differentiation in limb muscles, suggesting a role for FgF-4, located at the extremities of the myotubes, where it could be responsible for the absence of Frek mRNA in the muscle fibre.

Expression and regulation of Cek-8, a cell to cell signalling receptor in developing chick limb buds.
The Eph-related receptor tyrosine kinase gene, Cek-8, is expressed in mesenchyme at the tip of chick limb buds, with high levels of transcripts posteriorly and apically but fading out anteriorly.
The roles of FGFs in the early development of vertebrate limbs.
The purpose of this review is to discuss the functions performed by members of the FGF family in one of the best-studied vertebrate developmental systems—limb formation and discusses the potential role of FGFs in the induction of limb development.
