The midline of the vertebrate embryo plays a pivotal role in the regulation of left-right (LR) asymmetry. In mammals recent interest has focused on a structure situated at the caudal part of the notochord, the posterior notochord (PNC), which is homologous to Kupffer?s vesicle (KV) in fish and the gastrocoel roof plate (GRP) in frog. Despite highly diverging embryonic architecture, the PNC/KV/GRP is the site where motile monocilia set up a directional fluid flow, an event indispensable for the… CONTINUE READING
