• holotype
  • The holotype forelimbs measure 2.4 m (7.9 ft) long - the humerus (upper arm bone) is 93.8 cm (36.9 in), the ulna 68.8 cm (27.1 in), and the hand is 77 cm (30 in) - including the 19.6 cm (7.7 in) long recurved claws. (wikipedia.org)
  • mouse
  • RESULTS: We used antibodies against histone H3 lysine 4 trimethylations, a modification associated with promoters and open/active chromatin, histone H3 lysine 27 trimethylations associated with Polycomb-repressed regions, and ribonucleic acid polymerase II associated with transcriptional initiation to identify the chromatin state signature of the mouse forelimb during mid-gestation at embryonic day 12.

  • main
  • These characters can be interpreted as potential adaptations for erect forelimbs, as the olecranon is the insertion of the main forearm extensor (Mm. triceps brachii) and the scapulocoracoid-humerus articulation is further stabilized, allowing the limbs to move mainly on a parasagital plane.

  • hand
  • The specific name is derived from Latin bellus, "beautiful", and manus, "hand", in reference to the exquisite preservation of the forelimb. (wikipedia.org)
  • important
  • These are one of the first results that recover valuable postural information from the forelimb in this important group of diapsids. (unlp.edu.ar)
