During embryonic induction, the responding cells invoke an induced developmental program, whereas in the absence of an inducing signal, they assume a default uninduced cell fate. Suppression of the default fate during the inductive event is crucial for choice of the binary cell fate. In contrast to the mechanisms that promote an induced cell fate, those(More)
Mechanisms that regulate the number of cell division rounds during embryogenesis have remained largely elusive. To investigate this issue, we used the ascidian, which develops into a tadpole larva with a small number of cells. The embryonic cells divide 11.45 times on average from fertilization to hatching. The number of cell division rounds varies(More)
Inosine and adenosine formation was evaluated in different types of rat skeletal muscle during ischemic and non-ischemic contraction. Extensor digitorum longus (EDL, fast) and soleus (slow) muscles were stimulated electrically via the sciatic nerve (5 Hz, 10 min). Under non-ischemic condition, the concentrations of IMP, inosine, adenosine, and hypoxanthine(More)
