On the origin and development of the ventrolateral abdominal muscles in the avian embryo


In avian embryos the formation of ventrolateral abdominal muscles was studied by (1) heterospecific grafting experiments between chick and quail embryos and (2) ultrastructural examinations of cells having part in this process. The results demonstrate that the muscle cells are of somitic origin while the connective tissue derives from the somatopleure… (More)
