Several lines of evidence suggest that micromere signaling plays a key role in endo-mesoderm differentiation along the animal-vegetal (A-V) axis in sea urchin embryos. A recent study has suggested that the activity of micromeres of inducing endoderm differentiation of mesomere descendants is, unexpectedly, maximal at the hatching blastula stage in the echinoids Scaphechinus mirabiris and Hemicentrotus pulcherrimus. In the present study, to confirm the inductive capacity of the micromere… CONTINUE READING
