  • The dorsal marginal zone (DMZ) of the amphibian embryo is a key embryonic region involved in body axis organization and neural induction. Using time-lapse microscopic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), we follow the pregastrula movements that lead to the formation of the DMZ of the stage 10 Xenopus embryo. 2D and 3D MRI time-lapse series reveal that pregastrular movements change the tissue architecture of the DMZ at earlier stages and in a different fashion than previously appreciated.
