Lead author and geneticist Axel Visel and colleagues studied published snake genomes, also looking at the Sonic hedgehog and a piece of DNA known as ZRS - Zone of Polarizing Activity Regulatory Sequence. When the researchers inserted ZRS from other vertebrates and even fish into mice, the rodents developed normal limbs; when snake ZRS was inserted, the limbs were truncated.
Further study, using extensive sequencing of noncoding or regulatory sequence of these genes, is warranted.

In such cases, GFP gene is inserted into the genome of organism in the region of DNA which codes for the target proteins, and is controlled by the same regulatory sequence. In cells where the gene is expressed and the tagged proteins are produced, GFP is produced at the same time (7, 8).
