In developing embryos, boundary formation between neighbouring groups of cells is essential to establish compartments which later fulfil specialized functions. The ability to form such boundaries has likely developed early in animal evolution - due to functional requirements imposed by the necessity to separate tissues which protect the animal, take up food or ensure propagation. Essential for boundary formation are local cues which may be provided by the intersection of diffusible molecules or… CONTINUE READING
