2011 journal article

Development, 139(2), 437–442.

By: A. Morckel n, H. Lusic n, L. Farzana n, J. Yoder n, A. Deiters n & N. Nascone-Yoder n

author keywords: Small-molecule inhibitor; Rho kinase; Photocaging; Xenopus
MeSH headings : Animals; Body Patterning / drug effects; Dioxoles / metabolism; Dioxoles / pharmacology; Embryo, Nonmammalian / metabolism; Immunohistochemistry; Indoles / metabolism; Indoles / pharmacology; Mice; NIH 3T3 Cells; Pyridines / metabolism; Pyridines / pharmacology; Ultraviolet Rays; Xenopus laevis / embryology; Xenopus laevis / metabolism; rho-Associated Kinases / antagonists & inhibitors; rho-Associated Kinases / metabolism
TL;DR: A novel pharmacological agent that can be light activated to achieve spatiotemporally limited inhibition of Rho kinase activity in vivo is developed and application to the spatially heterogeneous problem of embryonic left-right asymmetry revealed a differential requirement for Rho signaling on the left and right sides of the primitive gut tube.

2007 journal article

The appendage role of insect disco genes and possible implications on the evolution of the maggot larval form


author keywords: drosophila; segment identity; zinc finger; appendage; limb; pattern formation
MeSH headings : Animals; Biological Evolution; Body Patterning; DNA-Binding Proteins / metabolism; Drosophila / embryology; Drosophila / growth & development; Drosophila / metabolism; Drosophila Proteins / metabolism; Head / embryology; Head / growth & development; Larva / growth & development; Larva / metabolism; Transcription Factors / metabolism; Tribolium / embryology; Tribolium / growth & development; Tribolium / metabolism
TL;DR: It is proposed that the disco genes always function as appendage factors, but their appendage nature is masked during Drosophila embryogenesis due to the reduction of limb fields in the maggot style Drosophile larva. (via Semantic Scholar)
