      Selleck, Rori; Song, Huai-Dong; Song, Anhua; Thisse, Bernard; Thisse, Christine; Mullins, Mary; Wingert, Rebecca Ann; Yu, Jingyi; Chen, Zhu; Zhou, Yi; McMahon, Andrew P.; Davidson, Alan J. (Public Library of Science, 2007)
      Kidney function depends on the nephron, which comprises a blood filter, a tubule that is subdivided into functionally distinct segments, and a collecting duct. How these regions arise during development is poorly understood. ...
    • Interaction of Retinoic Acid and scl Controls Primitive Blood Development 

      de Jong, Jill L. O.; Davidson, Alan; Wang, Yuan; Palis, James; Opara, Praise; Pugach, Emily; Daley, George Quentin; Zon, Leonard Ira (American Society of Hematology, 2010)
      Hematopoietic development during embryogenesis involves the interaction of extrinsic signaling pathways coupled to an intrinsic cell fate that is regulated by cell-specific transcription factors. Retinoic acid (RA) has ...
    • Pseudomonas aeruginosa Infection of Zebrafish Involves both Host and Pathogen Determinants 

      Clatworthy, Anne; Lee, Jenny See-Wai; Leibman, Mark; Kostun, Zachary; Davidson, Alan; Hung, Deborah (American Society for Microbiology, 2009)
      Zebrafish (Danio rerio) have a number of strengths as a host model for infection, including genetic tractability, a vertebrate immune system similar to that of mammals, ease and scale of laboratory handling, which allows ...
