Organogenesis and tissue remodeling are critical processes during postembryonic animal development. Anuran metamorphosis has for nearly a century served as an excellent model to study these processes in vertebrates. Frogs not only have essentially the same organs with the same functions as higher vertebrates such as humans, but also employ similar organogenic processes involving highly conserved genes. Development of frog organs takes place during metamorphosis, which is free of any maternal… CONTINUE READING
