    ..We show that their primary patterns are nearly identical to that observed in zebrafish embryos, and that their postembryonic growth relies on the same combination of migratory processes that we documented in the case of the zebrafish. ..

    ..The neuromasts are deposited by a migrating primordium that originates from the otic region. Here, we follow the development of this pattern and show that heterogeneities within the migrating primordium prefigure neuromast formation. ..

    ..Therefore, tissue- and development-specific expression patterns provided new information for selenoproteins of unknown function. ..
