Regulatory networks during embryogenesis of vertebrates
Herrmann, Bernhard G.
SummaryThe development of the body anlage with its organs is controlled by a multitude of complex regulatory mechanisms which follow a strict order. On top of these processes is the formation of mesenchyme, an event with similarities to metastasis formation of tumors. Novel methods are utilized to unravel regulatory networks controlling mesenchyme formation and tissue differentiation.
