... properties. How does each cell know how to do this? We have used the Xenopus blastula as a model system to study this problem. Previous work has shown that the cortical actin network is required to maintain shape and rigidity of the whole embryo, and its assembly is coordinated throughout the embryo...

... in a subset of NC cells that form craniofacial cartilage. Cells lacking Inca migrate successfully but fail to condense into skeletal primordia. Overexpression of Inca disrupts cortical actin and prevents formation of actin `purse strings', which are required for wound healing in Xenopus embryos. We show...

... intracellular transduction pathway. The loss of tissue continuity and cell detachment observed in Egfr downregulation conditions may be due, at least in part, to a decrease in cell adhesion. Accordingly, we detect a mild, but reproducible, decrease in the accumulation of DE-cad and cortical actin...

...Qinghua Tao; Brett Lloyd; Stephanie Lang; Douglas Houston; Aaron Zorn; Chris Wylie As the fertilized Xenopus egg undergoes sequential cell divisions to form a blastula, each cell develops a network of cortical actin that provides shape and skeletal support for the whole embryo. Disruption...
