Patterning in the vertebrate limb

Curr Opin Genet Dev. 1991 Aug;1(2):211-6. doi: 10.1016/s0959-437x(05)80072-3.

Abstract

The past few years have seen the isolation and characterization of some of the genes involved in the control of limb pattern formation. Their possible role in this fundamental process is discussed in the light of recent data, and an attempt is made to superimpose this molecular approach to patterning on pre-existing conceptual views.
