A resegmentation‐shift model for vertebral patterning
TLDR
It is demonstrated that vertebral bodies and neural arches form by resegmentation but that sclerotome cells shift in a region‐specific manner according to their dorsoventral position within a segment.
TGFβ signaling is required for sclerotome resegmentation during development of the spinal column in Gallus gallus
TLDR
It is proposed that TGFβ signaling regulates rostro-caudal polarity and subsequent resegmentation in sclerotome during spinal column development.
From somites to vertebral column
TLDR
It is indicated that a role for the notochord in vertebral segmentation is present in amniotes, highlighting a much-overlooked aspect of the development and evolution of vertebral patterning.
The role of the notochord in amniote vertebral column segmentation
Closure of the vertebral canal in human embryos and fetuses
TLDR
The highly ordered and substantial changes in shape of the vertebral bodies leading to the formation of the spinal canal make the development of the spine an excellent, continuous staging system for the (human) embryo between 6 and 10 weeks of development.
Developmental mechanisms of intervertebral disc and vertebral column formation
TLDR
The aim of this review is to provide a developmental framework through which vertebral column formation can be understood so that research scientists and clinicians alike can restore disc health with appropriately designed gene and cell‐based therapies.
Building the backbone: the development and evolution of vertebral patterning
TLDR
It is argued that centra are homologous among jawed vertebrates, and evidence in teleosts that the notochord plays an instructive role in segmental patterning, alongside the somites, and contributes to mineralization.

A histocytological and radiological overview of the natural history of intervertebral disk: from embryonic formation to age-related degeneration
TLDR
By showing that the natural history of IVD is orchestrated by a dynamic histocytological regulation, this study may facilitate better understanding of the developmental defects, cellular heterogeneity, age-related degenerative mechanisms, and biological regeneration ofIVD.
Congenital cervical spine malformation due to bi‐allelic RIPPLY2 variants in spondylocostal dysostosis type 6
TLDR
It is confirmed that RIPPLY2 is the gene for SCDO6 and the phenotype is broadened by adding myelopathy with or without spinal canal stenosis and spinal spasticity to the symptom spectrum.

Heterogeneity in the development of the vertebra.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cartilaginous, differentiation is differentially controlled in the dorsal part of the vertebra (spinous process) and in the neural arch and vertebral body.
The paired homeobox gene Uncx4.1 specifies pedicles, transverse processes and proximal ribs of the vertebral column.
TLDR
The axial skeleton develops from the sclerotome, a mesenchymal cell mass derived from the ventral halves of the somites, segmentally repeated units located on either side of the neural tube, which gives rise to vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs.
Function of somite and somitocoele cells in the formation of the vertebral motion segment in avian embryos.
TLDR
The studies show that resegmentation is found in most parts of the vertebra and in the distal ribs and the somite can be regarded as the ancestor ofThe vertebral motion segment.
Uncx4.1 is required for the formation of the pedicles and proximal ribs and acts upstream of Pax9.
TLDR
The loss of proximal ribs in Pax1/Pax9 double mutants and the data presented here argue for a role of Uncx4.1 upstream of Pax9 in the caudolateral sclerotome, which may be involved in the differential cell adhesion properties of the somite.
Avian intervertebral disc arises from rostral sclerotome and lacks a nucleus pulposus: Implications for evolution of the vertebrate disc
TLDR
F fate mapping data indicate that cells originating from the rostral half of each somite are responsible for forming the avian disc while cells in the caudal region of each Somite form vertebrae, and that nuclei pulposi are only present in mammals.
The role of bone morphogenetic proteins in vertebral development.
TLDR
It is shown that differentiation of the ventrolateral and dorsal parts of the vertebral cartilage is controlled by different molecular mechanisms and the former develops under the influence of signals arising from the floor plate-notochord complex.
Segmental relationship between somites and vertebral column in zebrafish.
TLDR
The results support co-localization of the anterior expression boundaries of zebrafish hoxc6 homologs with a cervical/thoracic transition and also suggest Hox-independent patterning of regionally specific posterior vertebrae.
The contribution made by a single somite to the vertebral column: experimental evidence in support of resegmentation using the chick-quail chimaera model.
TLDR
Results give support to the controversial theory of resegmentation, in which it was suggested that there is an apparent realignment of segmentation between the somite stage and the subsequent vertebral stage of development.
