We report e expression of zebrafish lmo4 during e first 48 h of development. Like its murine or olog, lmo4 is expressed in somitic mesoderm, branchial arches, otic vesicles, and limb (pectoral fin) buds. In addition, however, we report zebrafish lmo4 expression in e developing eye, cardiovascular tissue, and e neural plate and telencephalon. Zebrafish fgfr1 is a member of e fgf8 synexpression group and is required for fgf8 signalling at e midbrain-hindbrain boundary y 2004 Development Genes and Evolution 214(6):285-95. 26, 2008 · We report here e isolation rough enhancer detection of zebrafish sprouty1 gene (spry1), which on e basis of its expression pattern and its response to manipulation of Fgf8 signaling appears to be involved in e regulation of e Fgf8 pa way. is is e first description of is gene in zebrafish. Fish maintenance. Zebrafish (Danio rerio) were maintained, referring to e Zebrafish Book (Westerfield, 1995).Embryos were obtained by natural spawning and cultured at 28.5°C in Zebrafish Ringer's solution. e developmental stages of e embryos were determined by e hours post fertilization (hpf) and by morphological features, as described by Kimmel et al. (Kimmel et al., 1995). It is also known at FGF8 inhibits e expression of Dlx2 in mice (omas et al., 2000) and at of nkx3.2 in zebrafish (Wilson and Tucker, 2004). erefore, it seems at e upregulation of ese two genes is caused by e loss of inhibition by Fgf8. Fgf8 promotes e development of anterior part and suppresses posterior fate, while e Emx2 does e reverse. What's more, FGF8 manipulations suggest FGF8 controls e cortical graded expression of COUP-TF1. Moreover, e sharpness of bo COUPTF1 and COUP-TF2 expression borders would be expected of genes involved in boundary specification. Here we examine e patterning of e forebrain in zebrafish embryos at lack functional Fgf8/Ace. We find at Ace is required for e development of midline structures in e forebrain. In e absence of Ace activity, midline cells fail to adopt eir normal morphology and exhibit altered patterns of gene expression. However, al ough one allele clearly reduced e levels of fbxw4 mRNA, e o er ree insertions had no detectable effect on fbw4 expression. Instead, we showed at all four mutations result in e postembryonic up-regulation of e neighboring gene, fibroblast grow factor 8 (fgf8). Moreover, fgf8 is highly expressed in e tumorigenic lesions. During development, expression of Fgf8 was restricted to embryonic days 9 rough 13, suggesting to Lorenzi et al. (1995) at Fgf8 plays a role during a discrete stage of mouse embryogenesis. Using mouse Aigf to screen a placenta genomic phage library, Tanaka et al. (1995) cloned human AIGF. In addition, however, we report zebrafish lmo4 expression in e developing eye, cardiovascular tissue, and e neural plate and telencephalon. We demonstrate at expression in e rostral hindbrain requires acerebellar (ace/fgf8) and spiel ohne grenzen (spg/pou2) activity. e Dusp6 promoter was isolated from zebrafish and used to drive expression of destabilized green fluorescent protein (d2EGFP) in transgenic embryos (Tg(Dusp6:d2EGFP.. Expression of d2EGFP is initiated as early as 4 hours post-fertilization (hpf) wi in e future dorsal region of e embryo, where fgf3 and fgf8 are initially expressed. During e development of e zebrafish nervous system bo noi, a zebrafish pax2 homolog, and ace, a zebrafish fgf8 homolog, are required for development of e midbrain and cerebellum. Here we describe a dominant mutation, aussicht (aus), in which e expression of noi and ace is upregulated. We found at zebrafish sox is not dependent on Fgf8 function, as expression is normal in ace (fgf8) mutants (data not shown), al ough treatment of Xenopus embryos wi e Fgf inhibitor SU5402 eliminates bo otic and neural crest expression of sox (Honoré et al., 2003). Enhancer detection and developmental expression of zebrafish sprouty1, a member of e fgf8 synexpression group Article in Developmental Dynamics 237(9):2594-603. . 18, 2007 · To test if rerea and fgf8 interact genetically, we crossed adults heterozygous for bo bab and acerebellar (ace), e zebrafish fgf8 mutant.
