Latest Sonic hedgehog Stories
A team of IRCM researchers, led by Dr. Frédéric Charron, recently uncovered a nerve cell’s internal clock, used during embryonic development.
A team of UK researchers claims to have put forth the first ever experimental evidence in support of a long-standing theory about how biological patterns such as a leopard's spots or a tiger's stripes are formed.
If you think today's political rhetoric is overheated, imagine what goes on inside a vertebrate embryo.
New research may help to explain why the location of postnatal neural stem cells in the brain determines the type of new neurons that are generated.
A SCUBA expedition in Australia and New Zealand to find the rare embryos of an unusual shark cousin enabled American and British researchers to confirm new developmental similarities between fish and mammals.
Sonic hedgehog, a gene that plays a crucial rule in the positioning and growth of limbs, fingers and toes, has been confirmed in an unexpected place in the embryos of developing mice â€” the layer of cells that creates the skin.
The laboratory of Dr. FrÃ©dÃ©ric Charron, a researcher at the Institut de recherches cliniques de MontrÃ©al (IRCM), has discovered a new molecular mechanism that permits the guidance of visual nerves towards the brain.
In a study published in the journal Development, investigators at the USC School of Dentistry describe how to non-surgically reverse the onset of cleft palate in fetal mice - potentially one step in the journey to a better understanding of similar defects in humans.
The research group of Dr. FrÃ©dÃ©ric Charron, a researcher at the Institut de recherches cliniques de MontrÃ©al (IRCM), has made a discovery which could help treat spinal cord injuries and neurodegenerative diseases.
U.S. researchers said brain tumors appear to more aggressive when they feed off cancer stem cells that use Sonic Hedgehog protein signaling mechanisms.
