The typical abnormality induced by a 15 min shock at 37degreesC is a single discrete length along the somite file within which segmental boundaries are absent or irregular. The two sides of the same embryo present a similar but not necessarily identical appearance. Usually all the embryos in a treated batch show abnormalities of similar severity. Survival of treated embryos, the details of the visible malformations, and temporal aspects of the phenomenon have been studied. The results indicate… Expand
