The origin and movements of the hepato genie cells in the chick embryo as determined by radioauto graphic mapping


The origin of the prehepatic cells was determined by tracing the movements of [H]thymidinelabelled grafts excised from medium-streak to 4-somite stage chick embryos and transplanted to the epiblast, streak and endoderm-mesoderm layer of similarly staged recipient embryos. Although exact definition of prehepatic areas was not possible because of the small… (More)
