The maternal genome greatly influences vertebrate embryogenesis before activation of zygotic transcription. Dorsoventral patterning is initiated by maternal factors, but the molecular pathways involved are incompletely understood. In frogs and fish, localized zygotic domains are induced whereby cells either express dorsal or ventral genes. Wnt/β-catenin signalling promotes expression of the earliest dorsal zygotic genes. Among key zygotic ventralizing factors are the bone morphogenetic proteins… CONTINUE READING
