To enable a correlation of vascular corrosion casts with olfactory organs' anatomy and morphology one adult female (body weight: 78.8 grams, snout-vent length: 90 mm) and one male Xenopus
(body weight: 78 grams; snout-vent length: 70 mm) were killed by immersion within an overdose of MS 222 (0.5 %; Aldrich Chemicals, St.
Weber, "Endogenous transport systems in the Xenopus
laevis oocyte plasma membrane," Methods, vol.
Appearance of water channels in Xenopus
oocytes expressing red cell CHIP28 protein.
However, AQP2 may not be essential in aquatic species because the AQP2 gene is absent from the genome of Xenopus
tropicalis (Suzuki and Tanaka, 2009; Shibata et al., 2014b).
peroxisome proliferator activated receptors: genomic organization, response element recognition, heterodimer formation with retinoid X receptor and activation by fatty acids.
A whole-mount immunocytochemical analysis of the expression of the intermediate filament protein vimentin in Xenopus
. Development 105, 61-74.
laevis are able to migrate long distances in search of available habitat, especially through irrigation channels (Lobos and Jaksic, 2005; Lobos et al., 2013).
In addition, metamorphosis of twin Xenopus
tadpoles could not be observed in this experiment.
The cell cycle dependent change in subcellular localization of MCMs in yeast and Xenopus
proposed these proteins to be replication licensing factors [8, 15, 19].
In terms of early axon development these stages were equivalent to zebrafish stages 16 hours post fertilisation (hpf) to 24 hpf, Xenopus
stages 22 to 32, chick stages HH11 to HH18, and mouse stages E8.5 to E10.5 (data not published).
Additionally, our lab has shown that overexpression of TIMP-2 and -3 during Xenopus
laevis development leads to axial and neural tube defects .
Fortunately, spindles (30 to 50 um in length) that self-organized in Xenopus
egg extracts, as used in our study, have no cell membranes around them, permitting direct manipulation.
