Abstract

Background: While data regarding expression of limb element and tissue markers during normal mouse limb development exists, few studies show expression patterns in upper and lower limbs throughout key limb development stages. A comparison to normal developmental events is essential when analysing development of the limb in mutant mice models.
Results: Expression patterns of the joint marker Gdf5, tendon and ligament marker Scleraxis, early muscle marker MyoD1, and blood vessel marker Cadherin5 (Cdh5) are presented during the most active phases of embryonic mouse limb patterning. Anti-neurofilament staining of developing nerves in the fore- and hind-limbs and cartilage formation and progression also is described.
Conclusions: This study demonstrates and describes a range of key morphological markers, and methods, which together, can be used to assess normal and abnormal limb development.
