position and a net-like ECM structure appears between the continuously detaching notochord and the endoderm midline. We suggest that this temporary ECM structure may play a role in attracting (or guiding) migrating cells towards the midline, and in forming a border that prevents migrating cells from crossing the midline. In this way the ECM net-like structure assists in the accurate establishment of the embryonic ventral midline.
