Transcriptional heterochrony in talpid mole autopods
BACKGROUND: Talpid moles show many specializations in their adult skeleton linked to fossoriality, including enlarged hands when compared to the feet. Heterochrony in developmental mechanisms is hypothesized to account for morphological evolution in skeletal elements. METHODS: The temporal and spatial distribution of SOX9 expression, which is an early marker of chondrification, is analyzed in autopods of the fossorial Iberian mole Talpa occidentalis, as well as in shrew (Cryptotis parva) anddoi:10.5167/uzh-72606 fatcat:dwejg4nck5g5vlvqocu37aqaay
