Gail; Nelson, David R.; Nitsche, Anne; Olmo, Ettore; Ota, Tatsuya; Pallavicini, Alberto; Panji, Sumir; Picone, Barbara; Ponting, Chris P.; Prohaska, Sonja J.; Przybylski, Dariusz; Saha, Nil Ratan; Ravi, Vydianathan; Ribeiro, Filipe J.; Sauka-Spengler, Tatjana; Scapigliati, Giuseppe; Searle, Stephen M. J.; Sharpe, Ted; Simakov, Oleg; Stadler, Peter F.; Stegeman, John J.; Sumiyama, Kenta; Tabbaa, Diana; Tafer, Hakim; Turner-Maier, Jason; van Heusden, Peter; White, Simon; Williams, Louise; Yandell, Mark; Brinkmann, Henner; Volff, Jean-Nicolas; Tabin, Clifford J.; Shubin, Neil; Schartl, Manfred; Jaffe, David; Postlethwait, John H.; Venkatesh, Byrappa; Di Palma, Federica; Lander, Eric S.; Meyer, Axel; Lindblad-Toh, Kerstin (2013)
      It was a zoological sensation when a living specimen of the coelacanth was first discovered in 1938, as this lineage of lobe-finned fish was thought to have gone extinct 70 million years ago. The modern coelacanth looks ...
    • Genetic Analysis of the Roles of BMP2, BMP4, and BMP7 in Limb Patterning and Skeletogenesis 

      Bandyopadhyay, Amitabha; Tsuji, Kunikazu; Cox, Karen Ann; Harfe, Brian D; Rosen, Vicki; Tabin, Clifford James (Public Library of Science, 2006)
      Bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) family members, including BMP2, BMP4, and BMP7, are expressed throughout limb development. BMPs have been implicated in early limb patterning as well as in the process of skeletogenesis. ...
    • Limb regeneration revisited 

      Whited, Jessica LaMae; Tabin, Clifford James (BioMed Central, 2009)
      The investigation of vertebrate limb regeneration, a favorite topic of early developmental biologists, is enjoying a renaissance thanks to recently developed molecular and genetic tools, as indicated in recent papers in ...
    • Multiple Phases of Chondrocyte Enlargement Underlie Differences in Skeletal Proportions 

      Cooper, Kimberly L.; Oh, Seungeun; Sung, Yongjin; Dasari, Ramachandra R.; Kirschner, Marc W.; Tabin, Clifford J. (2013)
      Even a casual pass through the great halls of mammals in the world’s natural history museums highlights the wide diversity of skeletal proportions that allow us to distinguish between species even when reduced to their ...
    • A Novel Role for Mc1r in the Parallel Evolution of Depigmentation in Independent Populations of the Cavefish Astyanax mexicanus 

      Gross, Joshua B.; Borowsky, Richard; Tabin, Clifford James (Public Library of Science, 2009)
      The evolution of degenerate characteristics remains a poorly understood phenomenon. Only recently has the identification of mutations underlying regressive phenotypes become accessible through the use of genetic analyses. ...
    • Regeneration Review Reprise 

      Whited, Jessica LaMae; Tabin, Clifford James (BioMed Central, 2010)
      There have been notable advances in the scientific understanding of regeneration within the past year alone, including two recently published in BMC Biology. Increasingly, progress in the regeneration field is being inspired ...
    • A relative shift in cloacal location repositions external genitalia in amniote evolution 

      Tschopp, Patrick; Sherratt, Emma; Sanger, Thomas J.; Groner, Anna C.; Aspiras, Ariel C.; Hu, Jimmy K.; Pourquié, Olivier; Gros, Jérôme; Tabin, Clifford J. (2014)
      The move of vertebrates to a terrestrial lifestyle required major adaptations in their locomotory apparatus and reproductive organs. While the fin-to-limb transition has received considerable attention1,2, little is known ...
    • Scaling Pattern to Variations in Size during Development of the Vertebrate Neural Tube 

      Uygur, Aysu; Young, John; Huycke, Tyler R.; Koska, Mervenaz; Briscoe, James; Tabin, Clifford J. (2016)
      SUMMARY Anatomical proportions are robustly maintained in individuals that vary enormously in size, both within a species and between members of related taxa. However, the mechanisms underlying scaling are still poorly ...
