Retinoid signalling and hindbrain patterning

Curr Opin Genet Dev. 2000 Aug;10(4):380-6. doi: 10.1016/s0959-437x(00)00100-3.


Retinoid signalling has been implicated in regulating a wide variety of processes in vertebrate development. Recent advances from analyses on the synthesis, degradation and distribution of retinoids in combination with functional analysis of signalling components have provided important insights into the regulation of patterning the nervous system and the hindbrain in particular.
