The innervation of FGF-induced additional limbs in the chick embryo.
Motoneurones that supply the vertebrate limb innervate their muscle targets in a highly reproducible manner. As development proceeds, these limb-specific motoneurones send out axons, which grow towards the developing limb and then congregate at its base to form the plexus. In the plexus, in response to unknown positional cues, these axons rearrange, often changing their original spatial relationships, before sorting out to emerge in the defined nerve trunks that innervate the limb. Several pr...Expand abstract
