- Hedgehog signaling in mouse ovary: Indian hedgehog and desert hedgehog from granulosa cells induce target gene expression in developing theca cellsMark Wijgerde
Department of Reproduction and Development, Erasmus University Medical Center, P O Box 1738, 3000 DR Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Endocrinology 146:3558-66. 2005..The present results point to a prominent role of hedgehog signaling in the communication between granulosa cells and developing theca cells...
- A direct requirement for Hedgehog signaling for normal specification of all ventral progenitor domains in the presumptive mammalian spinal cordMark Wijgerde
Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, The Biolabs, Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02138, USA
Genes Dev 16:2849-64. 2002..Thus, Hh signaling is essential for organizing ventral cell pattern, possibly through the control of differential cell affinities...
- Noggin antagonism of BMP4 signaling controls development of the axial skeleton in the mouseMark Wijgerde
Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, The Biolabs, 16 Divinity Avenue, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA 02138, USA
Dev Biol 286:149-57. 2005..Thus, specific interactions between Bmp4 and Noggin in the early embryo are critical for establishment and patterning of the somite and subsequent axial skeletal morphogenesis...
