Recently publ ished papers by two laboratories report the cloning of genes in Xenopus and Drosophi la serving similar functions in establishing the dorsal-ventral axis: Sasai et al. (1994) describe the isolation of Xenopus chordin, which encodes a potent dorsal izing factor produced by the Spemann's organizer, and FranGois et al. (1994) report the cloning of the Drosophila shortgastrulation (sog) gene, which is produced in lateral blastoderm cells and antagonizes the action of decapentaplegic… CONTINUE READING
