Xenopus embryos have several experimental advantages for studying development. Although these advantages have traditionally been used to elucidate mechanisms of early development, they can also be exploited to investigate issues later in development such as organogenesis. We have begun to study pancreatic organogenesis in Xenopus. Using histological and molecular marker analysis, we characterized the anatomy of the developing pancreas in Xenopus embryos from the time of initial pancreatic… CONTINUE READING
