The orientation of developing myoblasts extending a bipolar axis in the presence of explanted myoblasts or whole notochord has been studied in vitro. Myoblasts tended to elongate perpendicular to the lines of diffusion of substances from these tissues. A slow-release source of agar impregnated with medium conditioned by segmented somitic myoblast or… CONTINUE READING
