By Robert Wall

This entire and cogent survey examines the topic of embryonic selection, the set of techniques basic to animal improvement wherein cells within the early embryo gather varied developmental features. interpreting either the classical literature and the more moderen, molecular findings, the writer summarizes the present kingdom of our figuring out of choice and poses key questions for the longer term. He starts with a attention of how a lot spatial development is already laid down while the egg kinds contained in the mom, and ends prior to the formation of obvious organs. inside those limits he additionally considers proof bought by way of a number of concepts, either experimental and biochemical, derived from the embryos of various animal teams. it is a appropriate textual content for higher point undergraduates, graduate scholars and researchers in developmental biology.

1982) who also refer to many other mutations with rather less specific effects. , 1979fl). The area which normally forms the germ cells is at the extreme posterior pole of the oocyte and is the only area to contain polar granules (Fig. 15). Constituents of the polar granules apparently include RNA (Mahowald 19716) and a single major basic protein (Waring, Allis & Mahowald, 1978). The posterior plasm of the oocyte is capable, after transfer to the anterior pole of a recipient egg, of inducing the formation of germ cells there (Illmensee, Mahowald & Loomis, 1976).

Conklin was also able to follow these plasms as they were distributed to different cells at cleavage, and to determine their fates in development (see p. 96). The plasms can therefore be named according to their prospective fates: the yellow crescent as myoplasm (forming muscle), the clear area ectoplasm (for ectoderm), the dark grey material endoplasm (for endoderm) and the pale grey crescent (which is least distinct and has received least further study) would be chordoplasm 42 From oocyte to zygote Sap (a) .

1978) that it may further widen the perivitelline space so assisting free rotation of the egg. 06 mm per minute: the second occurs at about the time of grey crescent formation (Hara, Tydeman & Hengst, 1977). 4) Finally, waves of relaxation and contraction travel from the animal to the vegetal pole a little before, and probably as a preparation for, first cleavage (Hara, 1971; Sawai, 1982); and so are probably of less significance here. The formation of the grey crescent obviously involves movements of the pigment granules.
