The oxidative agent paraquat induced tail abnormalities during Xenopus laevis development. Specimens exposed from blastula to the tadpole stage revealed pear-shaped myocytes and irregular intersomitic boundaries. The histological feature of the axial musculature was evaluated in embryos sampled at significant stages of the primary myogenesis. During the somitogenesis PQ-treated embryos showed normal appearing myotomes, but reduced PAS activity in the post-rotating myotomal cells, and myoblasts… Expand
