The morphogenetic cell movements responsible for growth and morphogenesis in vertebrate embryos are poorly understood. Myotome precursor cells undergo myotomal translocation; a key morphogenetic cell movement whereby myotomal precursor cells leave the dermomyotome epithelium and enter the subjacent myotome layer where myogenic differentiation ensues. The precursors to the embryonic epaxial myotome are concentrated in the dorsomedial lip (DML) of the somite dermomyotome (W. F. Denetclaw, B… CONTINUE READING
