Contents 1. Sucking in the gut: a brief history of early studies on gastrulation -- Gastrulation in sponges -- Gastrulation in the cnidaria and ctenophora -- Gastrulation in nematodes -- Gastrulation in the molluscan embryo -- Gastrulation in crustaceans: germ layers and cell lineages -- Gastrulation in Drosophila -- Gastrulation in other insects -- Sea urchin gastrulation -- Protochordate gastrulation: lancelets and ascidians -- Gastrulation in a chondrichthyan, the dogfish Scyliorhinus canicula -- Teleost gastrulation -- Gastrulation in amphibians -- Gastrulation in reptiles -- Gastrulation in the chick -- Gastrulation in the mouse embryo -- Gastrulation in the rabbit -- Gastrulation in other mammals and humans -- Cell movements of gastrulation -- Morphogenetic cellular flows during zebrafish gastrulation -- Cell-substrate interactions during deuterostome gastrulation -- Chemotaxis in coordinating cell movements during gastrulation -- Symmetry breaking in the egg of Xenopus laevis
Breaking radial symmetry: amniote type -- Vertebrate mesoderm induction: from frogs to mice -- Dorsoventral patterning of the mesoderm -- Early rostrocaudal patterning of the mesoderm and neural plate -- Early patterning of the left/right axis -- Neural induction -- Endoderm development -- Extraembryonic tissues -- FGF signaling during gastrulation -- Modulation of BMP signaling during vertebrate gastrulation -- Nodal signaling during gastrulation -- Activin and Vg1 and the search for embryonic inducers -- The role of Wnts in gastrulation -- Roles of notch during gastrulation -- Retinoid signaling during gastrulation -- Role of Otx2 during gastrulation -- Function of the winged helix transcription factor HNF3[beta]/FoxA2 during gastrulation -- Role of t-box genes during gastrulation -- Goosecoid and gastrulation -- Roles of Lim1 during gastrulation -- Not homeobox gene function in axial mesoderm development -- Sole of Siamois before and during gastrulation -- Conserved and divergent roles of Twist in gastrulation -- The Snail gene family during gastrulation -- System-level properties revealed by a gene regulatory network analysis of pre-gastrular specification in sea urchins -- The extracellular matrix of the deuterostome gastrula -- Carbohydrate and lipid modification of developmental signaling molecules -- Comparative aspects of gastrulation -- The evolution of gastrulation: cellular and molecular aspects -- Fossil embryos
Summary During gastrulation, tissue layers are formed and the overall body plan is established. This book is the definitive guide to this vitally important period in embryonic development, providing authoritative and up to date information that includes the first comprehensive interspecies comparison, cell movements and patterning events, the roles of individual genes and gene families, and the evolution of gastrulation
