Through loss- and gain-of-function approaches, they showed that Fgf signaling emanating from the distal region of the epidermis promotes shh expression in the proximal epidermis but that Fgf/Ras signaling prevents shh expression in the distal epidermis through the induction of pea3 expression and maintenance of wnt5b, an inhibitor of blastemal proliferation.
In the present study it was shown that the fish treated with a dose of 10 mg.[L.sup.-1] of indomethacin, did not suffer damage on the regenerative process of their tail fins, thus, this dose did not affect the formation of the epidermal cap, connective tissue, blastema, blastemal cells differentiation and formation of actinotrichia, as well as synthesis, deposition, organisation and mineralisation of the components of the lepidotrichial matrix.
Given its location and its classic small blue cell appearance, blastemal predominant Wilms tumor should be high on the differential diagnosis.

The malignant elements differ from those seen in blastomas in that they lack the blastemal primitive appearance and histologically resemble adult-type carcinomas and sarcomas.
Immature tissues may include varying amounts of neuroectodermal tissue or blastemal tissue.
