- Conserved developmental processes constrain evolution of lungfish dentitionsM M Smith
Craniofacial Development, Dental Institute, King s College, London, UK
J Anat 199:161-8. 2001..The universality amongst dipnoans and the implications for such a conserved constraint in the developmental module for the dentition is discussed...
- Developmental constraints conserve evolutionary pattern in an osteichthyan dentitionMoya Meredith Smith
Dental Institute KCL, Guy s Tower, London, SE1 9RT, United Kingdom
Connect Tissue Res 43:113-9. 2002..These marginal teeth form but are then lost in both, so that also this program of development is conserved within lungfish for 360 million years, from the earliest known form...
- Separate evolutionary origins of teeth from evidence in fossil jawed vertebratesMoya Meredith Smith
Craniofacial Development, Dental Institute, King s College London, Guy s Campus, London Bridge, London SE1 9RT, UK
Science 299:1235-6. 2003..Because tooth development occurs only in derived forms of placoderms, we suggest that teeth evolved at least twice, through a mechanism of convergent evolution...
- Vertebrate dentitions at the origin of jaws: when and how pattern evolvedMoya Meredith Smith
Department of Craniofacial Development, Dental Institute KCL, Guy s Tower, London Bridge, SE1 9RT, UK
Evol Dev 5:394-413. 2003..One shared developmental pattern is that of initiation from primordial tooth sites, independently in each dentate zone of the jaws. The new model is proposed as a framework for data on evolutionary developmental genetics...
- Spatial and temporal pattern for the dentition in the Australian lungfish revealed with sonic hedgehog expression profileMoya M Smith
MRC Centre of Developmental Neurobiology, King s College London, London SE1 1UL, UK
Proc Biol Sci 276:623-31. 2009..This reflects a shared developmental process with jawed vertebrates at the level of the tooth module but differs with the lack of replacement teeth...
- Reiterative pattern of sonic hedgehog expression in the catshark dentition reveals a phylogenetic template for jawed vertebratesMoya M Smith
King s College London, MRC Centre of Developmental Neurobiology, London SE1 1UL, UK
Proc Biol Sci 276:1225-33. 2009..This progressive, sequential restriction of shh is shared by toothed gnathostomes and conserved through 500 million years of evolution...
