Developmental Biology Tutorial No. 2 – The Making of a Vertebrate Limb.

"How is the vertebrate limb patterned?"

If you do not wish to read about vertebrate limb development it is advised you scroll straight down to the kittens strategically placed at the bottom of the page to help you overcome the trauma of momentarily being forced to think about work.

Presentation 1

General Introduction

Presentation 2

The formation of the limb bud and the identity of the fore and hind limbs

(For background interest this is one of the many papers on the role of Tbx5 in genetic disease. It causes Holt-Oram syndrome: A dominantly inherited malformation syndrome with short stature, upper limb anomaly, minor craniofacial anomalies, and absence of TBX5 mutations: Report of a Thai family )

Presentation 3

Induction of the apical ectodermal ridge and limb outgrowth

Allocation to the AER

AER induction

D/V patterning of the outgrowth

Presentation 4

AER function, the roles of FGF's in limb outgrowth

Presentation 5

Development of the antero- posterior axis


In the interest of actually making research that bit more interesting i have developed "ScopusWhacking". Woo and yay. Aim for the search to return only one research article when provided with just one surname and one other word. Usually works 1/3 of the time. At least it does in bio. God i'm bored…


As promised…

Caption anybody? No prizes well, no prizes that involve the consumption of vinegar shots

    "The same thing we try to do every night, Mittens…"

    "-Isn't that Lucy Liu?


    -Keep your head down!"

    "Foo-foo and Rainbow do their impression of the Thomson's lean-to shed"

    "I can't believe they sewed your head on a rabbit!

  4. What the fuck have you been smoking? (Izzard quote – don't hit me)


    "Those have to be fake…"

    "Did he just flip us off?"

    I'm done.

  5. biochem related comment (ewww):
    gilbert and many other books can be found on the web though, for all those who find themselves unable to go to the library bc they've become somehow physically attached to the keyboard. voilá the search function is a bit annoying bc it always gives you the different sections of a chapter, never the whole chapter, but still.
