Striking conservation across jawed vertebrates is seen at the cis-regulatory level in the homeodomain transcription factor orthopedia (Otp) gene, involved in the regulation of hypothalamic neurons that are responsible for the stress response.
Transition from the initial wide branching urinary collecting duct tree to narrower later branching is dependent on the proximity of other branch tips with bone morphogenetic protein 7 (BMP7) acting as a repelling molecule in this process.
Global protein expression during regeneration of the Xenopus froglet hindlimb has key differences, when compared to axolotl, that lead to signaling deficiency, failure to retard mitosis, premature chondrocyte differentiation, and failure of dorsoventral axial asymmetry.

BMC Developmental Biology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal that considers articles on the development, growth, differentiation and regeneration of multicellular organisms, including molecular, cellular, tissue, organ and whole organism research.
BMC Developmental Biology is part of the BMC series which publishes subject-specific journals focused on the needs of individual research communities across all areas of biology and medicine. We offer an efficient, fair and friendly peer review service, and are committed to publishing all sound science, provided that there is some advance in knowledge presented by the work.
BMC series - open, inclusive and trusted.
