Mesoderm induction in Xenopus laevis distinguishes between the various TGF-beta isoforms.

Abstract

Induction of mesoderm in ectodermal explants of Xenopus laevis blastula embryos had previously been shown to respond selectively to TGF-beta 2, with TGF-beta s 1 and 5 having no activity in this assay. As TGF-beta s 1, 2, and 3 are frequently coexpressed in tissues, we wished to examine the activity of TGF-beta 3 relative to that of TGF-beta s 1 and 2 in… (More)
