The Digital Mouse Embryo – towards an atlas of cellular dynamics from gastrulation to early organogenesis

Secreted signaling molecules that provide tissue with positional information (morphogen) can act either at long-range by diffusion or at short-range by limited diffusion. However, it remains unclear which mode of morphogen signaling is essential in assigning positional information for morphogenetic movement. The discshaped tracheal placode in Drosophila… CONTINUE READING
