    Expression of CLIC4 in neural tissues

    Chloride Intracellular Channel 4 (CLIC4) is expressed in a number of neural tissues and appears to participate in midgestational brain differentiation aswell as adult brain neurogenesis and may implicate dysfunctional CLIC4 regulation in brain pathology.

    Tracking craniosynostosis development

    Mouse lines with mutant fibroblast growth factor receptor 2 (FGFR2) develop craniosynostosis, with the specific cranial growth deviations occurring prenatally and worsening with time, and these deviations differing depending on the precise mutation present.

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.
