• laevis
  • The olfactory system of the African clawed frog ( Xenopus laevis ) undergoes dramatic rearrangements during metamorphosis, making this an ideal system in which to examine interactions between the brain and the olfactory sensory epithelium. (uwindsor.ca)
  • Higgs, Dennis M. and Burd, Gail D., "The role of the brain in metamorphosis of the olfactory epithelium in the frog, Xenopus laevis" (1999). (uwindsor.ca)
  • Xenopus tropicalis is a diploid species, related to the commonly used laboratory animal Xenopus laevis, and has attracted attention recently as a potential genetic model for animal development. (ncl.ac.uk)
  • The Xenopus tropicalis cDNAs, Xtcad1, Xtcad2, and Xtcad3, show between 88 and 94% sequence identity with their Xenopus laevis orthologues. (ncl.ac.uk)
  • gene
  • Thus, Xenopus is the only vertebrate model system that allows for high-throughput in vivo analyses of gene function and high-throughput biochemistry. (wikipedia.org)
  • research
  • However, the wide breadth of Xenopus research stems from the additional fact that cell-free extracts made from Xenopus are a premier in vitro system for studies of fundamental aspects of cell and molecular biology. (wikipedia.org)
