Cover legend

The cover illustration shows in anti-clockwise orientation forelimb skeletons of wild-type (green-blue false color) and compound mutant mouse embryos at gestational day E14.5, in which one or both copies of the Alx4 and Gli3 genes are inactivated (double homozygous: red-blue false color). For details, see Panman et al., (pp.443-448 ) in this issue.
