Evidence that platelet derived growth factor (PDGF) action is required for mesoderm patterning in early amphibian (Xenopus laevis) embryogenesis.

Abstract

Mesoderm induction is one of the major events of early vertebrate embryonic patterning. It appears to be controlled by sequential and combinatorial actions of several kinds of peptide growth factors. These include activin, fibroblast growth factor (FGF), and transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta), among others. In the present study, the function of… (More)
