apoptosis

A lack of cellular growth signals can lead to programmed cell death, apoptosisbut during embryonic development some apoptosis is desireable (for example, to
get rid of the webbing between fingers and toes).  However, too much cell
death will occur if apoptosis is not controlled.  Can anyone give me a model
that will detail the events between the secretion of a hydrophobic steriod 
signal which is then presented to an embryonic human cell and ending with 
reduced levels of apoptosis in those cells?

Any help at all would be appreciated more than you will ever know!
