- Making teeth to order: conserved genes reveal an ancient molecular pattern in paddlefish (Actinopterygii)Moya M Smith
Craniofacial Development and Stem cell biology, King s College London Dental Institute, London, UK Department of Earth Sciences, Natural History Museum, London, UK
Proc Biol Sci 282:. 2015..As such, Polyodon represents a basal actinopterygian model for the evolution of developmental novelty: initial conservation, followed by tooth loss, accommodating the adult trophic modification to filter-feeding. ..
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- 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...
- Ontogenetic development of an exceptionally preserved Devonian cartilaginous skeletonZerina Johanson
Department of Palaeontology, Natural History Museum, London, United Kingdom
J Exp Zool B Mol Dev Evol 318:50-8. 2012....
- No bones about it: an enigmatic Devonian fossil reveals a new skeletal framework--a potential role of loss of gene regulationZerina Johanson
Department of Palaeontology, Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, London SW7 5BD, UK
Semin Cell Dev Biol 21:414-23. 2010..Nevertheless, we propose that the composition of the Palaeospondylus skeleton represents a fossilized ontogenetic stage of endochondral bone, a type of bone characteristic of osteichthyan vertebrates...
- Cutting blade dentitions in squaliform sharks form by modification of inherited alternate tooth ordering patternsCharlie Underwood
Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, Birkbeck, University of London, London, UK Department of Earth Sciences, Natural History Museum, London, UK
R Soc Open Sci 3:160385. 2016....
- Early development of rostrum saw-teeth in a fossil ray tests classical theories of the evolution of vertebrate dentitionsMoya Meredith Smith
Department of Earth Sciences, Natural History Museum, London SW75BD, UK Dental Institute, Craniofacial Development, King s College London, London SE1 9RT, UK
Proc Biol Sci 282:20151628. 2015..This highly specialized rostral saw, derived from diversification of skin denticles, is distinct from the dentition and demonstrates the potential developmental plasticity of skin denticles. ..
