  • Developmental Biology: Xenopus Issue

    Submissions to a special issue of the journal Developmental Biology entitled: Modeling Human Development and Disease in Xenopus will open on August 1, 2014. Manuscripts can be submitted until November 1 2014, although earlier is better. Peer review must be completed and manuscript disposition determined no later than March 15th 2015, for publication in late spring.

  • Richard Harland elected to membership of the National Academy of Sciences; awarded the SDB 2014 Conklin Medal

    Dr. Harland found that BMP antagonists are fundamental for the patterning of germ layers. His research expands our knowledge of neural induction/patterning, FGF signaling, planar cell polarity, and developmental control of RNA splicing.

  • Sp8 regulates inner ear development

    Chung et al. published in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences that the eclipse mutant of Xenopus tropicalis has alterations in the sp8 gene locus. These tadpoles had decreased startle reflexes and altered swimming balance resulting from faulty embryonic inner ear development.

  • A new Xenopus model for Urofacial Syndrome

    Roberts et al. identified and knocked down the Xenopus orthologue of human HPSE2: establishing for the first time an in vivo vertebrate model for urofacial syndrome (UFS). This is the first study to shed light on the mechanisms underpinning the clinical features of UFS.
