In order to study the molecular processes involved in the final steps of neural induction, we are investigating the transcriptional regulation of the Xenopus laevis neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) gene. NCAM is expressed very early during neural development and its expression is dependent on neural induction signals. Using microinjection of reporter… CONTINUE READING
