The early development of teleost paired fins is strikingly similar to that of tetrapod limb buds and is controlled by similar mechanisms. One early morphological divergence between pectoral fins and limbs is in the fate of the apical ectodermal ridge (AER), the distal epidermis that rims the bud. Whereas the AER of tetrapods regresses after specification of the skeletal progenitors, the AER of teleost fishes forms a fold that elongates. Formation of the fin fold is accompanied by the synthesis… Expand
Dynamics of actinotrichia regeneration in the adult zebrafish fin.
TLDR
The dynamic turnover of Actinodin during fin regeneration is regulated by multiple factors, including the osteoblasts, growth rate in a potassium channel mutant, and instructive signaling networks between the epithelium and the blastema of the regenerating fin. Expand
Differential actinodin1 regulation in zebrafish and mouse appendages.
TLDR
Results hint for a change in regulation of and1 during evolution that led to the downregulation and eventual loss of this gene from tetrapod genomes. Expand
A somitic contribution to the apical ectodermal ridge is essential for fin formation
TLDR
It is demonstrated that apical-fold-inducing cells are progressively lost during gnathostome evolution; the absence of such cells within the tetrapod limb suggests that their loss may have been a necessary prelude to the attainment of limb-like structures in Devonian sarcopterygian fish. Expand
Mechanism of pectoral fin outgrowth in zebrafish development
TLDR
The results suggest that the timing of the A ER-AF transition mediates the differences between fins and limbs, and that the acquisition of a mechanism to maintain the AER was a crucial evolutionary step in the development of tetrapod limbs. Expand
Fin-fold development in paddlefish and catshark and implications for the evolution of the autopod
TLDR
Detailed aspects of paired fin development in the paddlefish Polyodon spathula and catshark Scyliorhinus canicula are characterized to explore aspects of this model in a broader phylogenetic context and suggest that limb-specific morphologies arose through evolutionary changes in the differentiation outcome of conserved early distal patterning compartments. Expand
Roles of basal keratinocytes in actinotrichia formation
TLDR
The role of basal keratinocytes is elucidated and a novel insight is provided into understanding the mechanism of actinotrichia formation. Expand
Structure and function of the median finfold in larval teleosts
TLDR
An analytical model is proposed that predicts the extent of camber from the oblique arrangement of the actinotrichia and curvature of the body and experimental data confirm the predictions of the model. Expand
HoxD expression in the fin-fold compartment of basal gnathostomes and implications for paired appendage evolution
TLDR
The results demonstrate a collinear pattern of nesting in early fin buds that includes HoxD14, a gene previously thought to be isolated from global Hox regulation, and fuel new hypotheses about the evolution of cluster regulation and the potential downstream differentiation outcomes of distinct Hox D-regulated compartments. Expand
Differential actinodin1 regulation in embryonic development and adult fin regeneration in Danio rerio
TLDR
C cis-acting regulatory elements that are required for tissue-specific expression as well as full recapitulation of actinodin1 expression during adulthood are identified and provided with useful molecular tools for the enhancement of transgene expression in adulthood. Expand
Actinotrichia collagens and their role in fin formation.
TLDR
Evidence is found that actinotrichia are composed of Collagens I and II, which are post-translationally processed by Lh1, and that the correct expression and assembling of these collagens is essential for fin formation. Expand

An analysis of in vivo cell migration during teleost fin morphogenesis.
TLDR
The migration of the mesenchymal cells between 135 and 220 h of development is investigated using Nomarski interference contrast microscopy and time-lapse video recording, which revealed that, generally, aligned processes were in close association with the surface of the actinotrichial fibrils and not the spaces between them.

Comparative Fine Structure of the Actinotrichia (Elastoidin) in Developing Teleost and Dipnoi Fish Fins
TLDR
So far, on the basis of morphology and fine structure, actinotrichia are considered to be homologues of ceratotichia found in Chondrichthyes, where elastoidin has been biochemically and biophysically analyzed. Expand
Initiation of the actinotrichial development in the early fin bud of the fish, Salmo
TLDR
Ultrastructural analysis of initial development of actinotrichia, the skeleton anlage of the pelvic fin buds, was performed on the rainbow trout and morphological data suggest that the epidermal pseudoapical cap probably initiates the development ofActinotRichia. Expand

TLDR
It has been found that in the killifish the distal epithelium of the pectoral fin bud forms a morphologically distinct apical ectodermal ridge along its entire distal margin that is a relatively more prominent feature than its counterpart in various tetrapod systems. Expand
Hox gene expression in teleost fins and the origin of vertebrate digits
TLDR
A scheme for the fin–limb transition in which the distal autopods (digits) are neomorphic structures produced by unequal proliferation of the posterior part of an ancestral appendix is suggested. Expand
The development of the paired fins in the Zebrafish (Danio rerio)
TLDR
Comparisons of endoskeletal development of the zebrafish with reports on teleosts, actinopterygians and chondrichthyans show that endoskletal morphogenesis in theZebrafish pectoral fin follows a morphogenetic process which is wide-spread among actinoperativegians. Expand

TLDR
During early stages of fold production a temporary set of previously unreported extracellular cross fibres spans the subepidermal space at right angles to actinotrichia, which could be advantageous for maintaining the structural integrity of the early fin fold. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that, although simpler in organization, teleost fins do have a distal structure that might be considered comparable to the autopod region of limbs, which is similar to tetrapod Hox genes. Expand
BMPs negatively regulate structure and function of the limb apical ectodermal ridge.
TLDR
It is found that BMPs limit limb outgrowth by promoting AER regression, as BMP inhibition results in persistence of the AER, prolonged Fgf expression and excess soft-tissue growth. Expand
Interactions between HOXD and Gli3 genes control the limb apical ectodermal ridge via Fgf10.
TLDR
An antagonistic interactions between posterior Hoxd genes and Gli3 are described, suggesting that the latter product protects the AER from the deleterious effect of the formers, and evidence that Fgf10 is the mediator of HOX-dependent AER expansion is presented. Expand
