Xenopus embryonic epidermis changes its cellular composition during development: the appearance of ciliated epidermal cells before hatching is a remarkable characteristic. In this study, the functional change of ciliated cells to mucus-secreting cells was examined with immunocytochemistry using anti-tubulin and anti-chondroitin 6-sulfate (C6S). Before hatching, most epidermal cells were labeled with anti-C6S in a granular fashion. Immunoelectron microscopy revealed that the anti-C6S-positive… CONTINUE READING
