- Origin and evolution of the integumentary skeleton in non-tetrapod vertebratesJean Yves Sire
Universite Pierre and Marie Curie, UMR, Paris, France
J Anat 214:409-40. 2009..Given its widespread distribution in non-tetrapod lineages we further propose that elasmodine is a very ancient tissue in vertebrates and predict that it will be found in ancestral rhombic scales and cosmoid scales...
- The amelogenin story: origin and evolutionJean Yves Sire
Equipe Evolution and Développement du Squelette, UMR7138 Systématique, Adaptation, Evolution CNRS, Universite Pierre and Marie Curie, MNHN, IRD, ENS Paris, France
Eur J Oral Sci 114:64-77; discussion 93-5, 379-80. 2006..This duplication occurred long before tetrapod differentiation, probably in an ancestral osteichthyan. The story of AMEL origin is completed as follows: SPARC-->HEVIN-->ENAM-->AMBN-->AMEL...
- The histological structure of glyptosaurine osteoderms (Squamata: Anguidae), and the problem of osteoderm development in squamatesVivian de Buffrénil
Departement Histoire de la Terre, Museum national d histoire naturelle, UMR 7207 CNRS, Paris, France
J Morphol 271:729-37. 2010..The superficial layer of the osteoderms must have resulted from epidermal contribution, a conclusion that would support previous hypotheses on the role of epidermal-dermal interactions in the formation of squamate osteoderms...

- MEPE evolution in mammals reveals regions and residues of prime functional importanceClaire Bardet
UMR 7138, Equipe Evolution and Développement du Squelette Université Paris 6, Paris, France
Cell Mol Life Sci 67:305-20. 2010..Our data indicate that MEPE was involved in various functions (bone and eggshell mineralization) prior to acquiring those currently known in placental mammals...
- The origin and evolution of enamel mineralization genesJean Yves Sire
UMR 7138, Universite Pierre et Marie Curie Paris 6, Paris, France
Cells Tissues Organs 186:25-48. 2007..This suggests that enamel matrix proteins (EMPs) have at least the same age. We review the current data on the origin, evolution and relationships of enamel mineralization genes...
