    Cell Tissue Res 296:111-9. 1999
    ..Finally, we discuss possible mechanisms of how a joint forms and the evidence that the joint is a 'signalling centre' that may coordinate the development of adjacent skeletal structures...

    Dev Biol 218:183-98. 2000
    ..Finally, we have used the early Xenopus embryo as an in vivo assay to show that Sfrp-2, like Frzb, is a Wnt antagonist. These results suggest that Sfrp-2 and Frzb may function in the developing embryo by modulating Wnt signalling...

    R K Ladher
    Department of Craniofacial Development, King s College, London, SE1 9RT, UK
    Science 290:1965-7. 2000
    ..Furthermore, we demonstrate the synergistic interactions of the extracellular polypeptide ligands FGF-19 and Wnt-8c as mediators of mesodermal and neural signals, respectively, initiating inner ear development...

    E Kavanagh
    Department of Veterinary Basic Sciences, The Royal Veterinary College, London, UK
    Dev Dyn 235:826-34. 2006
    ..These findings support a direct mechano-dependent role for FGF-2, but not FGF-4, in the cavitation process and indicate that GDF-5 is likely to influence chondrogenesis positively without contributing directly to joint cavity formation...
