Genetic Mechanisms of Telencephalon Diversification Through Shifts in the Pallial-Subpallial Boundary
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2009-05-04)
The vertebrate brain develops through the formation of compartments. These compartments are physically separated to allow for the proper differentiation of each structure within the brain. The telencephalon, a compartment ...
Chemical manipulation of dental patterning in Malawi cichlids
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2008-05-05)
A dynamic model for odontogenesis is lacking. Cichlids serve as superior organisms for studies in tooth development because of diversity in tooth shape, size, number, number of rows, all of which undergo continuous ...
Novel expression sites and genetic diversity of FoxP2 in Lake Malawi cichlids
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2011-05-09)
FoxP2 is a forkhead box-family transcription factor intricately linked to the development of learned motor skills, especially language in humans or vocalizations in other animals. It plays a prominent role in development ...
Defining tooth and taste bud density throughout development
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2013-05-08)
Epithelial-mesenchymal interactions are the foundation for building differing oral tissues. While the epithelium has the ability to develop into multiple tissue types, the mesenchyme confers regional specificity. Using ...
