Summary: Recently, molecular markers such as recombination activating genes (RAG), terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TdT), stem cell leukemia hematopoletic transcription factor (SCL), Ikaros and gata‐binding protein (Gata) ‐family members have been isolated and characterized from key lower vertebrates, adding to our growing knowledge of lymphopolesis in ectotherms. In all gnathostomes there appear to be two main embryonic locations derived from the early mesoderm, both intra‐ and… Expand
Regulation of the stem cell leukemia (SCL) gene: A tale of two fishes
TLDR
The results demonstrate the power of combining the compact genome of the pufferfish with the advantages that zebrafish provide for studies of gene regulation during development, and provide a powerful tool for the manipulation of hemopoiesis and vasculogenesis in vivo. Expand
Non-cell autonomous requirement for the bloodless gene in primitive hematopoiesis of zebrafish.
TLDR
Observations demonstrate that the zebrafish bloodless (bls) gene product is uniquely required in a non-cell autonomous manner for primitive hematopoiesis, potentially acting via regulation of scl. Expand
Early hematopoiesis and developing lymphoid organs in the zebrafish
TLDR
The initial appearance of various blood lineages and the nature of accumulating hematopoietic tissue in the thymus and kidney, the main lymphoid organs of adult teleosts, in zebrafish is described. Expand
Sequencing and expression of the CD3 γ/δ mRNA in Pleurodeles waltl (urodele amphibian)
TLDR
Cl cloning and sequencing of a CD3 cDNA from the salamander Pleurodeles waltl, highly homologous to the Xenopus and chicken CD3 γ/δ cDNAs are reported, finding the highest CD3δ mRNA expression in the thymus and confirming the tissue and lymphoid specificities of this mRNA. Expand
Transcriptional accessibility for genes of multiple tissues and hematopoietic lineages is hierarchically controlled during early hematopoiesis.
TLDR
The hypothesis that stem cells possess a wide-open chromatin structure to maintain their multipotentiality, which is progressively quenched as they go down a particular pathway of differentiation, is supported. Expand
A prominent role for invariant T cells in the amphibian Xenopus laevis tadpoles
TLDR
An important and perhaps even dominant role of multiple nonclassical MHC class I-restricted iT cell populations in tadpoles and, by extension, other aquatic vertebrates with rapid external development that are under pressure to produce a functional lymphocyte repertoire with small numbers of cells is suggested. Expand
Lymphocyte Populations in Jawless Vertebrates: Insights Into the Origin and Evolution of Adaptive Immunity
TLDR
It appears that T- and B-lymphocyte lineages specialized for cellular and humoral arms of adaptive immunity emerged in a common ancestor of vertebrates, and that jawed and jawless vertebrates coopted different antigen receptors within the context of such lymphocytes lineages. Expand
Characterization of a Xenopus laevis CXC chemokine receptor 4: implications for hemato‐poietic cell development in the vertebrate embryo
TLDR
Xenopus CXCR4 mRNA expression was up‐regulated during early neurula stages and remained high during early organogenesis, suggesting that SDF‐1 and CX CR4 are involved in regulating the migratory behavior of hematopoietic stem cells colonizing the larval or fetal liver. Expand
Rag1 and rag2 gene expressions identify lymphopoietic tissues in juvenile and adult Chinese giant salamander (Andrias davidianus)
TLDR
The results not only confirm that as expected the thymus and spleen are primordial lymphopoietic tissues but also suggest that the liver and kidney provide site of lymphocyte differentiation in Chinese giant salamander. Expand
Molecular evidence for hierarchical transcriptional lineage priming in fetal and adult stem cells and multipotent progenitors.
TLDR
Global and single-cell analyses revealed a hierarchical organization of transcriptional lineage programs, with downregulation of megakaryocyte-erythroid genes from HSCs to LMPPs, sustained granulocyte-monocyte priming, and upregulation of common lymphoid (but not B and T cell-specific) genes.

Intraembryonic origin of hepatic hematopoiesis in Xenopus laevis.
TLDR
It is shown that hepatic erythrocytes, leukocytes, and B lymphocytes in the liver of Xenopus larvae were derived from stem cells that originated from the intraembryonic mesoderm, a major site of hematopoietic stem cell differentiation during vertebrate development. Expand

TLDR
This review discusses recent developments in the field of fish immunology, particularly focusing on T-cell development in the thymus of cartilagenous and bony fish. Expand
Ontogeny of hematopoietic cells in Rana pipiens: precursor cell migration during embryogenesis.
TLDR
It is proposed that hematopoietic precursor cells, possibly derived from lateral plate mesoderm, migrate interstitially from the posterior of the embryo during early development and invade the anteriorly located pronephroses and dorsal aortae during stage 20. Expand
Cloche, an early acting zebrafish gene, is required by both the endothelial and hematopoietic lineages.
TLDR
Results show that cloche is involved in the genesis and early diversification of the endothelial and blood lineages, possibly by affecting a common progenitor cell population. Expand

TLDR
The identification of highly conserved, embryonic signaling pathways and transcription regulatory genes illustrates the enormous utility of analyzing embryonic hematopoiesis in frog, chick, fish, and mouse systems to further the understanding of human stem cells. Expand

TLDR
Findings support a hypothesis in which the hematopoietic program of vertebrates is established by variations in homologous migration pathways of extra- and intraembryonic progenitors. Expand
Conservation of a master hematopoietic switch gene during vertebrate evolution: Isolation and characterization of Ikaros from teleost and amphibian species
TLDR
Overall, Ikaros is expressed in a lymphoid‐specific fashion similar to that found in mice and humans, which confirms it as a master switch of hematopoiesis. Expand
The early ontogeny of hematopoietic cells studied by grafting cytogenetically labeled tissue anlagen: localization of a prospective stem cell compartment.
TLDR
Histological examination of the developing dorsal anterior area indicates that extensive vascularization is a prominent characteristic of this region, and the dorsal aortae and vasculature surrounding the pronephros may be sites where at least one population of hematopoietic cells matures and subsequently enters circulation.

The recombination activation gene 1 (RAG1) of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss): cloning, expression, and phylogenetic analysis.
TLDR
Data from cloned RAG1 from trout forms the basis for a proposal that the thymus of teleost species plays an essential developmental role in lymphopoiesis and thus can be regarded as a primary lymphoid organ. Expand
Expression of zebrafish rag genes during early development identifies the thymus.
TLDR
To follow development of the immune system in zebrafish, the expression of the recombination activating genes, rag1 and rag2, which have been previously isolated and characterized are analyzed to follow the development of organs containing these cells. Expand
