    Dystroglycan is a cell surface receptor involved in the pathogenesis of muscular dystrophy, and plays a critical role in the assembly and homeostasis of basement membranes. Since data about the amphibian homologue are limited, we have cloned the full-length dystroglycan cDNAs from the frog...

    During limb development, the interdigital mesenchyme has been proposed to play a signaling role instructing morphogenesis of different digit types, as well as undergoing programmed cell death necessary to free digits in animals not adapted for swimming or flying. We have generated a conditional,...

    Magainin 2 is pore-forming antimicrobial peptide on lipid matrix of bacterial membrane, secreted from the skin of the African clawed frog Xenopus laevis. The aim of this study was to investigate a new concept for antibacterial mechanisms called bacterial apoptosis-like cell death. We examined...

    Natural infections of ectothermic vertebrates by ranaviruses (RV, family Iridoviridae) are rapidly increasing, with an alarming expansion of RV tropism and resulting die-offs of numerous animal populations.

  • Sculpting a fly leg: BMP boundaries and cell death. Milán, Marco // Nature Cell Biology;Jan2007, Vol. 9 Issue 1, p17 

    Bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) shape vertebrate limbs and define digits by inducing programmed cell death in interdigital tissues. Recent findings show that Drosophila legs are also sculpted by programmed cell death. In this case, rather than the absolute activity of BMP, it is the sharp...

    Axolotls (Ambystoma mexicanum) can completely regenerate lost limbs, whereas Xenopus laevis frogs cannot. During limb regeneration, a blastema is first formed at the amputation plane. It is thought that this regeneration blastema forms a limb by mechanisms similar to those of a developing...
