    Anna Di Gregorio
    Department of Molecular and Cell Biology, University of California, 401 Barker Hall, Berkeley, California 94720 3204, USA
    Dev Biol 244:385-95. 2002
    ..Taken together, these observations suggest that tail formation in ascidian larvae requires not only signaling from notochord to muscle cells, but also a "retrograde" signal from muscle cells to notochord...
  3. ncbi The regulation of forkhead/HNF-3beta expression in the Ciona embryo
    A Di Gregorio
    Division of Genetics, Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology, University of California, 401 Barker Hall, Berkeley, California 94720, USA

    Curr Opin Genet Dev 8:457-63. 1998

    Development 126:5599-609. 1999
