During somitogenesis in Hymenochirus boettgeri, somites separate from non-segmented mesoderm. Somite formation involves changes in position of myotomal cells from perpendicular to parallel relative to axial organs; the changes are asynchronous and show a dorsoventral gradient. After the rotation has been completed, the myotomal cells (primary myoblasts) occupy the whole length of the myotomes. MyoD is present in nuclei of non-segmented mesoderm cells, of myotomal cells during their rotation and… CONTINUE READING
