• Axolotl
  • In order to understand how the ischium and the ilium evolved and how the acetabulum was reoriented during this transition, growth series of the Australian lungfish Neoceratodus forsteri and the Mexican axolotl Ambystoma mexicanum were cleared and stained for cartilage and bone and immunostained for skeletal muscles.

  • Development
  • Homologous muscles develop in the same order with the hypaxial musculature developing first, followed by the deep, then the superficial pelvic musculature.Conclusions: Development of the pelvic endoskeleton and musculature is very similar in Neoceratodus and Ambystoma. (edu.au)
