Amphibians, and particularly the African clawed frog Xenopus laevis, have been used for more than a century as models of vertebrate embryonic development. However, in many cases, elucidation of developmental functions of specific gene sequences could be severely impeded, because X. laevis is a tetraploid species, with multiple functional copies of many genes of interest. Recent studies have shifted focus to the West African or tropical clawed frog, X. tropicalis, the only known diploid species… CONTINUE READING
