cis-Regulatory elements control tissue-specifc spatial and temporal patterns of gene expression, and changes in gene expression, most likely due to modifcations in the cis-regulatory modules, are believed to be one of the major developmental mechanisms driving evolutionary changes throughout Metazoa. The impressive diversity of limb morphologies across vertebrates is intriguing s...
Cis-regulatory elements are specific DNA sequences rich in transcription factor binding sites; such elements are involved in modulating and establishing temporal and spatial patterns of gene expression. Changes in the expression of genes responsible for patterning embryonic structures are considered as important sources for evolutionary variations in morphology. The development and popu...
