Shark fin
Image of page 26
fin As the fin grows, the muscles on the ventral side of the animal (hypaxial muscles) split around the fin (each carrying its own nerve supply) on top = elevators below = depressors
Image of page 27
elevators depressors THIS BASIC PLAN IS STILL WITH US! Elevators/extensors Depressors/flexors

LIMBS, THEREFORE, ARE MODIFIED FINS Bony fish ( Osteichthyes ) evolved 400 Ma including one group of lobe-finned fish ( Sarcopterygii ) with bones in their fins

BUD POSITION DETERMINED BY SIGNALING FROM SOMITES Hindlimb Forelimb e.g., pectoral fin and forelimb = boundary between cervical and thoracic somites (anterior boundary of Hoxc6)
Image of page 32
Limb bud HOW DOES IT GET PATTERNED & ORGANIZED? APICAL ECTODERMAL RIDGE ± organizing center ² - sends out signals that cause pattern of cell differentiation
Image of page 33
Progress zone: cells divide, elongating limb As in axial skeleton, Hox genes are expressed to pattern the limb (from proximal to distal) Hoxa9,d9 Hoxa9 -11 Hoxd9-11 APICAL ECTODERMAL RIDGE Hoxa9 -13 Hoxd9-13
Image of page 34
Progress zone APICAL ECTODERMAL RIDGE (AER) A clever experiment: The earlier you remove the AER, the less of the limb that develops AER AER AER

OTHER GENES PATTERN OTHER AXES posterior vs anterior (shh) dorsal vs ventral (wnt7a) Just so you know You can learn about this in other classes! region cells that secrete sonic hedgehog

PUTTING IT ALL TOGETHER Limbs grow out from body wall as modified fins with one set of muscles on top and another below, all of which are connected to the neural tube (spinal cord)
Image of page 37
ANTHER BIG DIFFERENCE IS THE HEAD! Most complex region of body
Image of page 38
Don ³ t worry: we won ³ t learn the whole embryology of the head! Except for a few key facts, principles: 1. Heads, like limbs, are evolutionary novelties. Created by using old cells, organs in a new way 2. Many distinct modules, that become highly integrated 3. Lots of opportunities for variation! and it starts with the central nervous system (CNS) brain and spinal cord
Image of page 39
Remember neurulation? During neurulation, the neural plate folds over itself into a neural tube
Image of page 40
As the mesoderm forms segments (somites) so does the neural tube Neural segments Mesodermal segments (Somites) Forebrain Midbrain Hindbrain Spinal cord
Image of page 41
Forebrain (prosencephalon) Midbrain (mesencephalon) Hindbrain (rhombencephalon) The various segments of the brain start to grow and flex Also parts differentiate into primordial sensory organs (eyes, olfactory cells, etc)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
