Involvement of fibronectin during epiboly and gastrulation in embryos of the common carp, Cyprinus carpio

Abstract

The present report firstly describes a pilot study in which, during early development of embryos of the common carp, Cyprinus carpio, the cellular adhesion to fibronectin (FN) was blocked by administration of GRGDS peptide (which binds to the FN-receptor). As this treatment resulted in developmental aberrations, suggesting a functional role for FN, the… (More)
