In this study we have analysed the expression of Hoxb-4, Hoxb-1, Hoxa-3, Hoxb-3, Hoxa-4 and Hoxd-4 in the neural tube of chick and quail embryos after rhombomere (r) heterotopic transplantations within the rhombencephalic area. Grafting experiments were carried out at the 5-somite stage, i.e. before rhombomere boundaries are visible. They were preceeded by the establishment of the precise fate map of the rhombencephalon in order to determine the presumptive territory corresponding to each… CONTINUE READING
