  • The role of gene cascades in determining limb formation in birds and mammals
    • Gene cascades
      • A process where expression of one gene produces a protein that triggers the expression of another gene
        • Gene cascades of HOX genes result in limb development
          • Genes that regulate skeletal development in vertebrates
          • limb develops from base to extremities in a specific pattern        (bones, muscles, ligaments, tendons, nerves and blood vessels
            • Limb develops from limb buds on the side of the body down to the fingers or toes
    • HOX genes
      • Genes that regulate skeletal development in vertebrates
