Hedgehog molecule[edit]

I have read that defects in the Hedgehog signaling pathway in humans are a cause of this common birth defect. Is there someone with the appropriate background/credentials who can add this information? [Denis Carlos] —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:32, 26 May 2009 (UTC)

Cyclopia photo[edit]

Does anyone have a non-copyrighted photo they could share for this article? Preferably of a sheep. I think a human one would be too disturbing. I have seen a few lambs born with this defect. It is really impressive indeed. Peter Znamenskiy 18:19, 21 May 2006 (UTC)


What is with the kitten bit? I think that is not relevant: someone with no medical knowledge has taken a picture of a cyclopic kitten, and many people were sceptical. How is this good factual knowledge? It is obvious that a cyclopic kitten is perfectly possible, it is a developmental defect possible in all mammals. I think this part should be removed. The bit from Leroi is good though, I like him. 12:52, 21 November 2006 (UTC)

This article on "Cy" looks legitimate: Would this be worth citing in the article? Coco la Nut (talk) 22:51, 1 July 2008 (UTC)

yes it's 100 %, it was even examined by a vet — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 20:46, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

POSSIBLE copyright violation...CLARIFICATION[edit]

I was doing some wikification and whatnot on his article when I came to an ambiguous term and decided to go to the website to look it up. Once there, I realised that the page had been copied word-for-word. HOWEVER, it also says this at the bottom:

Now, there's DEFINITELY a problem in that the text is not being properly attributed. I know I can resolve this using {{source-attribution}}. However, I know that there's a lot of sticky legal issues around copyright and plagarism and licensing, so I want to clarify that this statement, without ever mentioning any kind of licence, is acceptable.

The other issue is that I really don't know which came first! The website is a wiki of sorts, and it's possible that they are really taking the text from here and not the other way around. I very much doubt that, though, because they have all kinds of different categorisation and discussion and whatnot.

Forget all that crossed out stuff. This gets worse. It's really from here, which was being properly attributed (I had moved it into a footnote because I thought it was just an unexperienced editor placing an attribution in the middle of the article!). BUT, there is NOTHING on this site that suggests that it is allowed to be copied like this. So, not only is there a copyvio on Wikipedia, there's also one on this other site! *sigh* I'm going to go through this now and delete or summarize chunks..... — Skittleys (talk) 15:50, 11 September 2009 (UTC)
