Neuregulin induces the expression of mesodermal genes in the ectoderm of Xenopus laevis.

Abstract

The primary patterning event in early vertebrate development is the formation of mesoderm and subsequent induction of the neural tube by the mesoderm. Some of the transforming growth factor (TGF)-beta family (Activin, Vg1) and the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family molecules have been implicated for their roles in mesoderm induction. Here we show first… (More)
