A detailed fate map of all the progeny derived from each of the blastomeres of the 4- and 8-cell stage South African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) embryo is presented. Each “identified” blastomere that results from stereotypic cleavages has a characteristic set of progeny that distinguishes it from the other blastomeres of the embryo. The 4-cell dorsal (D) blastomere is the major progenitor of the stomodeum, cement gland, retina, notochord, head somite, pharynx and liver. The 4-cell ventral (V… CONTINUE READING
