The histogenetic and neoplastic potentials of defined regions of the 8th day mouse embryonic egg cylinder were examined following ectopic transfer to beneath the testis capsule. No differences in histogenetic potential were detected between anterior and posterior slices of the embryo, either when composed of all three germ layers or of embryonic ectoderm alone. Small anterior and distal fragments of embryonic ectoderm also produced similar histogenetic profiles, although posterior fragments… CONTINUE READING
