Wholemount antibody labeling techniques and horseradish peroxidase backfilling were used to analyze the pattern of neuronal differentiation in the embryonic Xenopus central nervous system between stages 22 and 35/36. In the spinal cord, the first neurons to differentiate are the Rohon-Beard neurons; they are followed by ventral neurons with descending axons (descending interneurons, motoneurons) and lateral interneurons with commissural axons. The somata and axons of these primary neurons form… CONTINUE READING
