In a number of species, the floor plate of the developing neural tube and spinal cord has been ascribed specialized functions associated with the patterning of neuronal differentiation. The differentiation of the floor plate itself is believed to be closely related to the presence of the underlying notochord. Grafting experiments have previously shown that(More)
We have previously shown that the binding of the lectin wheat germ agglutinin (WGA) to developing tail buds results in a range of caudal axial defects, which were most likely due to the affinity of the lectin for sialic acid residues. In the present study, we examined the distribution and role of a sialic acid-containing glycoprotein, N-CAM, in chick tail(More)
