Flow on the right side of the gastrocoel roof plate is dispensable for symmetry breakage in the frog Xenopus laevis.

Abstract

Leftward flow of extracellular fluid breaks the bilateral symmetry of most vertebrate embryos, manifested by the ensuing asymmetric induction of Nodal signaling in the left lateral plate mesoderm (LPM). Flow is generated by rotational beating of polarized monocilia at the posterior notochord (PNC; mammals), Kupffer's vesicle (KV; teleost fish) and the… (More)
