Germ cells are a population of cells that do not differentiate to form somatic tissue but form the egg and sperm that ensure the reproduction of the organism. To understand how germ cells form, holds a key for identifying what sets them apart from all other cells of the organism. There are large differences between embryos regarding where and when germ cells form but the expression of Vasa protein is a common trait of germ cells. We studied the role of vasa during germ cell formation in the… CONTINUE READING
