  • embryonic
  • Scientists soon realized that Xenopus was also a valuable and versatile laboratory model for basic biology, enabling studies that shed light on both fundamental mechanisms of vertebrate embryonic development and mechanisms underlying human diseases. (eurekalert.org)
  • frogs
  • To study the mechanism that pipid frogs lack the buccal cycle, respiratory motor activities were recorded from the isolated brainstem-spinal cord preparation of Xenopus laevis . (springer.com)
  • In the present study, we examined the long-term effects of atrazine exposure on reproductive development and function in an all-male population of African clawed frogs ( Xenopus laevis ), generated by crossing ZZ females (sex-reversed genetic males) to ZZ males ( SI Materials and Methods ).

  • oocytes
  • Here, we describe techniques for purifying the MeCP2-contining histone deacetylase complex from Xenopus laevis oocytes. (springer.com)
  • Prediction of Functionally Important Phospho-Regulatory Events in Xenopus laevis Oocytes. (nih.gov)
  • Xenopus oocytes are naturally arrested at G2 of meiosis I. Exposure to either insulin/IGF-1 or the steroid hormone progesterone breaks this arrest and induces resumption of the two meiotic division cycles and maturation of the oocyte into a mature, fertilizable egg. (genome.jp)
  • histone
  • Wade, P. A., Jones, P. L., Vermaak, D., and Wolffe, A. P. (1998) A multiple subunit Mi-2 histone deacetylase from Xenopus laevis cofractionates with an associated Snf2 superfamily ATPase. (springer.com)
  • retinal
  • In the present study, we analyzed the spatial and temporal distribution of Isl1-immunoreactive cells during Xenopus laevis retinal development and its relation to the formation of the retinal layers, and in combination with different markers of cell differentiation. (hindawi.com)
  • These data together suggest a possible role for Isl1 in the early differentiation and maintenance of different retinal cell types, and Isl1 can serve as a specific molecular marker for the study of retinal cell specification in X. laevis . (hindawi.com)
  • tissues
  • The purpose of this book is to provide the active researcher with a central source of high quality light microscopic color images of the tissues of X. laevis , to aid in the identification of the cells and tissues of interest. (indigo.ca)
  • development
  • Scientists soon realized that Xenopus was also a valuable and versatile laboratory model for basic biology, enabling studies that shed light on both fundamental mechanisms of vertebrate embryonic development and mechanisms underlying human diseases. (eurekalert.org)
  • cells
  • The Xenopus laevis egg contains an asymmetric distribution of ribonucleic acids (RNAs), which are parceled out to different cells during cleavage. (els.net)
  • The Xenopus egg rapidly divides into smaller cells to prepare for cell movements and organ formation. (els.net)
  • The ultrastructure of the glomus cells of the carotid labyrinth was investigated in the anuran, Xenopus laevis. (biomedsearch.com)
  • complex
  • Brainstem preparations of Xenopus exhibited the intermittent burst complex (lung bursts) similar to the lung ventilation cycle in vivo. (springer.com)
  • Mouse
  • An evolutionary conserved region of 35 amino acids at the C-terminus has been shown both in Xenopus and mouse TPX2 to bind the Eg5 kinesin (Eckerdt et al. (atlasgeneticsoncology.org)
  • formation
  • In Xenopus , RNAs localised in the egg initiate formation of both the germ layers and the dorsal axial structures. (els.net)
