Clonal origins of Rohon-Beard neurons in Xenopus were determined quantitatively by injecting horseradish peroxidase into individual blastomeres at the 16-cell stage and later counting labeled and unlabeled Rohon-Beard neurons. Two different patterns of cleavage were selected. In pattern X, all Rohon-Beard neurons originated from three blastomeres (V1.1, V1… (More)
