The development of the vertebrate face is a dynamic multi-step process which starts with the formation of neural crest cells in the developing brain and their subsequent migration to form, together with mesodermal cells, the facial primordia. Signalling interactions co-ordinate the outgrowth of the facial primordia from buds of undifferentiated mesenchyme(More)
Tooth development in urodele amphibians occurs from a restricted region of anterior cranial neural crest. An in vitro culture system was used to test the odontogenic potential of more caudal regions of neural crest, including an "intermediate region" of neural folds which has never previously been tested for either fate or potential. Explants of different(More)
Beginning at mid-neurulation, a wave of somite segmentation passes down the axolotl body axis in a cephalocaudal direction. At 20 degrees C a somite forms every 2.57 hr. Fate-mapping of the presomitic mesoderm indicates that the primordia for the next few somites occupy nearly the same space that they will after segmentation, but that the remaining somites(More)
