  1. pmc Time space translation: a hox mechanism for vertebrate a-p patterning
    Aj Durston
    Institute of Biology, University of Leiden, Sylvius Laboratory, Wassenaarseweg 72, 2333 BE, Leiden, Netherlands
    Curr Genomics 13:300-7. 2012
    ..This is thus a different situation than in Drosophila, where the primary pattern guiding Hox spatial collinearity is generated externally, by the gap and segmentation genes...
  2. pmc XMeis3 is necessary for mesodermal Hox gene expression and function
    Paul M J In der Rieden
    Studiekring, Utrecht, Netherlands
    PLoS ONE 6:e18010. 2011
    ..In addition, we show that XMeis3 function is necessary for the progression of gastrulation. Finally, we present evidence for synergy between XMeis3 and Hoxd1 in Hoxd1 autoregulation in mesoderm during gastrulation...
  3. doi request reprint Global posterior prevalence is unique to vertebrates: a dance to the music of time?
    A J Durston
    Institute of Biology, University of Leiden, Sylvius Laboratory, Leiden, The Netherlands
    Dev Dyn 241:1799-807. 2012
    ..Why is this? We suspect this is because posterior prevalence is explicitly connected to the vertebrate form of Hox temporal collinearity, which is central to axial patterning...
  4. pmc Developmental principles: fact or fiction
    A J Durston
    Sylvius Laboratory, Institute of Biology, University of Leiden, Wassenaarseweg 72, 2333 BE Leiden, The Netherlands
    ScientificWorldJournal 2012:980151. 2012
    ..The emerging developmental genetic hierarchies already reveal a wealth of interesting phenomena, whatever we choose to call them...
  5. doi request reprint Hox collinearity - a new perspective
    Antony J Durston
    Institute of Biology, University of Leiden, Sylvius Laboratory, Wassenaarseweg, Leiden, The Netherlands
    Int J Dev Biol 55:899-908. 2011
    ..The evidence focuses attention on interactions between Hox genes and on the vertebrate somitogenesis clock. These novel conclusions open new perspectives for the field...
  6. doi request reprint Review: Time-space translation regulates trunk axial patterning in the early vertebrate embryo
    A J Durston
    Sylvius Laboratory, Leiden, The Netherlands
    Genomics 95:250-5. 2010
    ..The role of the organiser was investigated further and this turns out to be only the induction of neural tissue. Apparently, development of a stable axial hox pattern requires neural hox patterning...
  7. doi request reprint Time-space translation: a developmental principle
    A J Durston
    Sylvius Laboratory, Leiden, The Netherlands
    ScientificWorldJournal 10:2207-14. 2010
    ..Apparently, development of a stable anterior-posterior pattern requires neural hox patterning. We believe that this mechanism represents a developmental principle...
  8. ncbi request reprint Calponin modulates the exclusion of Otx-expressing cells from convergence extension movements
    R Morgan
    Hubrecht Laboratory, Netherlands Institute for Developmental Biology, Uppsalalaan 8, 3584 CT, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Nat Cell Biol 1:404-8. 1999
    ..XclpH3 is a Xenopus homologue of the mammalian calponin gene, the product of which binds both actin and myosin and prevents the generation of contractile force by actin filaments...
  9. ncbi request reprint Neural induction and patterning in embryos deficient in FGF signaling
    S F Godsave
    Netherlands Institute for Developmental Biology, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Int J Dev Biol 41:57-65. 1997
    ..The results support the idea that FGFs are involved in inducing posterior development, but they suggest that other signals are also necessary for antero-posterior patterning of the primary body axis...
  10. ncbi request reprint A novel guanine exchange factor increases the competence of early ectoderm to respond to neural induction
    R Morgan
    Hubrecht Laboratory, Netherlands Institute for Developmental Biology, Utrecht, Netherlands
    Mech Dev 88:67-72. 1999
    ..Lfc is expressed pan ectodermally soon after gastrulation and may respond to an early determinant of dorsal ectoderm...
  11. ncbi request reprint Expression of retinoic acid 4-hydroxylase (CYP26) during mouse and Xenopus laevis embryogenesis
    K de Roos
    Hubrecht Laboratory, Netherlands Institute for Developmental Biology, Uppsalalaan 8, 3584 CT, Utrecht, The Netherlands
    Mech Dev 82:205-11. 1999
    ..By mid gastrulation there is an anterior and a posterior expression domain, each of which gets more complex later in development. There are some important similarities and differences in expression pattern between Xenopus and mouse...
