In order to understand the role of the protein of Xenopus vasa homolog (Xenopus vasa-like gene 1, XVLG1) in germ line cells, an attempt was made to perturb the function of the protein with the anti-vasa antibody 2L-13. The 2L-13 or the control antibody was microinjected with a lineage tracer (FITC-dextran-lysine, FDL) into single vegetal blastomeres containing the germ plasm of Xenopus 32-cell embryos, the descendants of which were destined to differentiate into a small number of primordial… CONTINUE READING
