The anterior extent of dorsal development of the Xenopus embryonic axis depends on the quantity of organizer in the late blastula.

Abstract

In amphibian gastrulae, the cell population of the organizer region of the marginal zone (MZ) establishes morphogenesis and patterning within itself and within surrounding regions of the MZ, presumptive neurectoderm, and archenteron roof. We have tested the effects on pattern of reducing the amount of organizer region by recombining halves of Xenopus laevis… (More)
