In situ hybridization analysis of Xenopus laevis embryos reveals that mRNA encoding the platelet-derived growth factor alpha receptor (PDGFR alpha) is expressed in cephalic neural crest masses prior to migration from the future neural tube and during their migration into the visceral arches. The analysis of fluorescently labeled neural crest tissue(More)
Secreted and membrane-spanning proteins play fundamental roles in plant development but pose challenges for genetic identification and characterization. We describe a "secretion trap" screen for gene trap insertions in genes encoding proteins routed through the secretory pathway. The gene trap transposon encodes a beta-glucuronidase reporter enzyme that is(More)
