Hereditary hair loss and the ancient signaling pathways that regulate ectodermal appendage formation
TLDR
The study of normal hair development may suggest ways to restore or eliminate hair and might identify possible targets for the therapy of basal cell carcinoma, a cancer which strongly resembles embryonic hair follicles.

Co-option of Hair Follicle Keratins into Amelogenesis Is Associated with the Evolution of Prismatic Enamel: A Hypothesis
TLDR
This work proposes a hypothesis that KRT75 was co-opted by ameloblasts during the evolution of Tomes' process and the prismatic enamel in synapsids.
Grand Challenges in Comparative Tooth Biology.
TLDR
This work highlights several emerging model groups of organisms that are at the forefront of increasing the authors' appreciation of the mechanisms underlying tooth diversification.
Distinct tooth regeneration systems deploy a conserved battery of genes
TLDR
It is proposed that the expression domains described here delineate a highly conserved “successional dental epithelium” (SDE), which is known to mark hair follicle epithelial stem cells in mice, and may utilize a related epithelial progenitor cell type, despite the highly derived nature of the resulting functional organs.
A new scenario for the evolutionary origin of hair, feather, and avian scales
TLDR
It is suggested that the alpha‐keratinized hairs from living synapsids may have evolved from the hypothetical glandular integument of the first amniotes, which may have presented similarities with common day terrestrial amphibians.
Molecular principles of hair follicle induction and morphogenesis
TLDR
The morphological characteristics, major underlying principles and molecular key players that control HF development are introduced and a corresponding working hypothesis is synthesized.

TLDR
The observations that scale formation in birds involves an inhibition of feather formation coupled with observations on the feathered feet of the scaleless and Silkie strains support the view that the ancestor of modern birds may have had feathered hind limbs similar to those recently discovered in nonavian dromaeosaurids.
Transcriptome sequencing and analysis for the pigmentation of scale and skin in common carp (Cyprinus carpio).
TLDR
The transcriptome analysis will contribute to further elucidation of mechanisms of teleost scale formation and coloration and identify consensus DEGs and biological processes in scale and skin pigmentation.

X–linked anhidrotic (hypohidrotic) ectodermal dysplasia is caused by mutation in a novel transmembrane protein
TLDR
The positional cloning of the gene mutated in EDA is described, which encode a predicted 135–residue transmembrane protein that may belong to a novel class with a role in epithelial–mesenchymal signalling.
Cloning of Tabby, the murine homolog of the human EDA gene: evidence for a membrane-associated protein with a short collagenous domain.
TLDR
A candidate cDNA is identified for the mouse Tabby gene (Ta), which, based on phenotype and syntenic mapping, is postulated to represent the analogous murine disorder XLHED, and the predicted extracellular collagenous domain of this membrane protein may play a key role in epithelial-mesenchymal interactions.
The Tabby phenotype is caused by mutation in a mouse homologue of the EDA gene that reveals novel mouse and human exons and encodes a protein (ectodysplasin-A) with collagenous domains.
TLDR
The Ta gene is cloned and it is found to be homologous to the EDA gene, which encodes a 391-residue transmembrane protein, ectodysplasin-A, containing 19 Gly-Xaa-Yaa repeats.
The anhidrotic ectodermal dysplasia gene (EDA) undergoes alternative splicing and encodes ectodysplasin-A with deletion mutations in collagenous repeats.
TLDR
A complete splicing map of the EDA gene is built up and the longest and what most probably represents the full-length EDA transcript, EDA-A is characterized, which encodes a 391 amino acid transmembrane protein with a short collagenous domain, (Gly-X-Y)19, and is highly homologous to the protein mutated in Tabby mice.
Evolution of patterns and processes in teeth and tooth-related tissues in non-mammalian vertebrates.
TLDR
The evolutionary links that exist between odontodes and organs that are phylogenetically related to them (teeth and scales) suggest the use of comparative approaches to study these structures, and the current state of knowledge on developmental mechanisms involved in non-mammalian odontogenesis is reviewed.
