- Chicken muscle mitochondrial content appears co-ordinately regulated and is associated with performance phenotypes
Summary: We have detected variation in muscle mitochondrial content across chickens. This variation relates to phenotypes and also indicates coordinate regulation of mitochondrial biogenesis across the musculature.
- Genetic basis of hindlimb loss in a naturally occurring vertebrate model
Summary: Here we genetically characterise mutations in tbx4 which underlie pelvic finless, a naturally occurring model of hindlimb loss in zebrafish that lacks pelvic fin structures.
- On the development of extragonadal and gonadal human germ cells
Summary: The presence and developmental trajectory of ectopic human germ cells in the adrenals and gonads during the first and second trimesters is investigated by comparing the expression dynamics of early, late and meiotic germ cell markers.
