Caenorhabditis elegans zygotes undergo a series of four differentiative divisions to generate 5 somatic founder cells and a germ-line progenitor cell by the 16- to 24-cell stage of embryogenesis. The pattern of divisions, cell positions, and development of the embryonic cells are invariant from embryo to embryo. Through a combination of embryo manipulation, treatment of embryos with pharmacologic agents, and genetic analysis of maternal-effect embryonic-lethal mutants, researchers in several… CONTINUE READING
