Maternal information stored in particular regions of the egg cytoplasm has an important function in the determination of developmental fate during early animal development1,2. Ascidians show mosaic development3,4; such autonomous development has been taken as evidence that prelocalized ooplasmic factors specify tissue precursor cells during embryogenesis. Interest has been concentrated on the mechanisms underlying the formation of muscle cells in the tail, as yellow-coloured myoplasm in eggs is… CONTINUE READING
