Rhombomere development was investigated in a reptile, Alligator mississippiensis, using a variety of methodologies: cytoarchitecture (cresyl violet), histochemistry (peanut agglutinin), immunocytochemistry (antibodies to acetylated tubulin, vimentin, calretinin, and acetylcholinesterase), and external and internal morphology of wholemount embryos. Rhombomere boundaries form sequentially until 8 rhombomeres are present at stage 8. From stage 11 onwards, rhombomere borders fade. When present… CONTINUE READING
