Abstract. In the developing neural tube of vertebrate embryos, many types of neural and nonneuronal cells differentiate in response to the secreted signalling molecule, Shh. Shh shows a spatially restricted pattern of expression in cells located at the ventral midline, yet governs the differentiation of diverse cell types throughout the ventral half of the neural tube. Here, we describe how the distinct fate assumed by cells in response to Shh is dependent upon their position with respect to… Expand
Ontogenetic Expression of Sonic Hedgehog in the Chicken Subpallium
TLDR
This study strongly suggests tangential migration of Shh-positive cells from the preoptic region into other subpallial domains, particularly into the pallidal mantle and the intermediate septum. Expand
The effect of sonic hedgehog on motor neuron positioning in the spinal cord during chicken embryo development
TLDR
It is reported that overexpression of Shh affects motor neuron positioning in the spinal cord during chicken embryo development by inducing abnormalities in the structure of the motor column and motor neuron integration. Expand
Sonic hedgehog signalling in the developing and adult brain
TLDR
Observations suggest that in the adult brain, Shh signals through its receptor complex Ptc/Smo, or through Ptc alone, than those initially established during early embryonic development. Expand
Effect of sonic hedgehog on motor neuron positioning in the spinal cord during chicken embryonic development
TLDR
The results indicate that the ectopic expression of SHH leads to ventralization in the spinal cord during chicken embryonic development by inducing abnormalities in the structure of the motor column and motor neuron integration. Expand
Retinoic acid and the control of dorsoventral patterning in the avian spinal cord.
TLDR
It is proposed that retinoids have an essential role in the patterning of the dorsoventral axis of the spinal cord, and are also required for the correct integration of anteroposterior patterning signals with dor soventral determinants in the rostral spinal cord. Expand
A Requirement for Retinoic Acid-Mediated Transcriptional Activation in Ventral Neural Patterning and Motor Neuron Specification
TLDR
Reinoid signaling and the activator functions of retinoid receptors are required to pattern the expression of HD and bHLH proteins and to specify motor neuron identity and joint exposure of neural progenitors to retinoids and FGFs suffices to induce motor neuron differentiation in a Shh-independent manner. Expand
Sonic hedgehog in the nervous system: functions, modifications and mechanisms
TLDR
Subsequent trafficking and organelle sorting in the Shh signaling pathway have been observed and offer a new dimension to the understanding of downstream signal transduction events. Expand
Shh dependent and independent maintenance of basal midbrain
TLDR
It is pointed out that not all the midbrain neuronal populations are dependent on Shh for their maintenance, as previously thought, and the existence of a specific genetic pathway for the specification of the mesencephalic red nucleus is suggested. Expand
Role of Hedgehog and Gli Signalling in Telencephalic Development
TLDR
The presence of some dorsoventral patterning in animals lacking both Shh and GH3 implies that, although these molecules are major players in patterning the telencephalon, other patterning factors exist. Expand
An emerging role for prdm family genes in dorsoventral patterning of the vertebrate nervous system
TLDR
Pdm genes are expressed in spatially restricted domains along the DV axis of the neural tube and play important roles in the specification of progenitor domains, as well as in the subsequent differentiation of motor neurons and various types of interneurons. Expand

The specification of neuronal identity by graded Sonic Hedgehog signalling.
TLDR
During the development of vertebrate nervous system, distinct classes of motor neurons and interneurons are generated at distinct dorsoventral positions in the ventral neural tube, directed by the secreted protein Sonic Hedgehog. Expand
Sonic hedgehog induces the differentiation of ventral forebrain neurons: A common signal for ventral patterning within the neural tube
TLDR
It is shown that SHH induces the differentiation of ventral neuronal cell types in explants derived from prospective forebrain regions of the neural plate, and these neurons possess distinct identities that match those of the ventral neurons generated in these two subdivisions of the forebrain in vivo. Expand
Requirement of 19K form of Sonic hedgehog for induction of distinct ventral cell types in CNS explants
TLDR
It is proposed that Shh acts as a morphogen to induce distinct ventral cell types in the vertebrate central nervous system to facilitate induction of motor neurons by the notochord. Expand
Control of Cell Pattern in the Neural Tube by the Zinc Finger Transcription Factor and Oncogene Gli-1
TLDR
It is demonstrated that expression of Gli-1, one of three vertebrate homologs of Ci, can be induced by Shh in the neural tube and support for the hypothesis that it is a mediator of the Shh signal in vertebrates is provided. Expand
FGF and Shh Signals Control Dopaminergic and Serotonergic Cell Fate in the Anterior Neural Plate
TLDR
Evidence that intersections of Shh and FGF8 create induction sites for dopaminergic neurons in the midbrain and forebrain is provided, illustrating that cell patterning in the neural plate is a multistep process in which early inducers are replaced by multiple local organizing centers which specify distinct neuronal cell types within these compartments. Expand
Distribution of Sonic hedgehog peptides in the developing chick and mouse embryo.
TLDR
Temporal expression of Shh peptides is consistent with induction of sclerotome in somites and floor plate and motor neurons in the CNS, as well as the regulation of anterior-posterior polarity in the limb, but there is no direct evidence for long-range diffusion of the 19 x 10(3) Mr peptide which is thought to mediate both short- and long- range cell interactions.

Sonic hedgehog Regulates Proliferation and Inhibits Differentiation of CNS Precursor Cells
TLDR
Results indicate that cellular competence restricts the proliferative response to Shhin vivo and provide evidence that proliferation and differentiation can be regulated separately in precursor cells of the spinal cord. Expand
Two Critical Periods of Sonic Hedgehog Signaling Required for the Specification of Motor Neuron Identity
TLDR
The ambient SHH concentration during the late period determines whether ventralized progenitors differentiate into motor neurons or interneurons, thus defining the pattern of neuronal cell types generated in the neural tube. Expand
A Sonic Hedgehog–Independent, Retinoid-Activated Pathway of Neurogenesis in the Ventral Spinal Cord
TLDR
Findings reveal an unanticipated Shh-independent signaling pathway that controls progenitor cell identity and interneuron diversity in the ventral spinal cord. Expand
Differential patterning of ventral midline cells by axial mesoderm is regulated by BMP7 and chordin.
TLDR
Evidence is provided that the signalling properties of axial mesoderm over this period are regulated by the BMP antagonist, chordin, which may act to refine the patterning of the ventral midline along the rostrocaudal axis. Expand
