Somite formation in the mouse embryo begins with the recruitment of mesenchymal cells into the paraxial mesoderm. Cells destined for the paraxial mesoderm are recruited from a progenitor population found first in the embryonic ectoderm and later in the primitive streak and the tail bud. Experimental evidence suggests that the allocation of precursor cells to different mesodermal lineages may be related to the site at which the cells ingress through the primitive streak. An increasing number of… CONTINUE READING
