As part of an ongoing study of heart development in normal and cardiac lethal mutant axolotls (Mexican salamanders) we examined the extracellular matrix (ECM) by microscopical methods. With scanning electron microscopy we are unable to detect ECM on the apical surface of cells of the early cardiogenic mesoderm. During the period of lateral plate migration… CONTINUE READING
