Abstract

Expression of four BMP antagonist genes, noggin, chordin, gremlin and Follistatin, was examined during chick feather development. Although expression of noggin and chordin was not detected, gremlin and Follistatin were expressed differentially in feather buds. The differential expression patterns of gremlin and Follistatin change dynamically from the nascent inter-feather bud region to the posterior domain of the feather bud.
