When Xenopus blastula or early gastrula ectoderm is disaggregated and cells are kept dispersed for up to 5 h prior to reaggregation, the resulting spheres will differentiate into large neural structures. In contrast, dissociated and immediately reaggregated ectoderm will only differentiate into ciliated epidermis (so-called 'atypical epidermis'). Ectoderm treated with mesoderm-inducing XTC-conditioned medium during the period of reaggregation immediately after disaggregation will only form one… CONTINUE READING
