Biochemistry of Amphibian Metamorphosis

  title={Biochemistry of Amphibian Metamorphosis},
  author={JOHN L. DOLPHINt and Earl Frieden},
The metamorphosis of Amphibia may be regarded as an important phase of biochemical evolution (1). While considerable attention has been given to morphological changes during this process (2, 3), much less effort has been directed towards the biochemistry of amphibian metamorphosis. Some of the early data have been summarized by Needham (4). More recent work has been reported by Melnic (5), Nowinski (6), and Riggs (7). Munro (8) observed an increase in urea production in the course of… CONTINUE READING
