   Can anyone suggest a chemical such that I can put it into the medium
with cleavage-stage (like 4-cell stage) Xenopus embryos, and have it stop
the cells from dividing, but otherwise not damage the cells (in
particular, I want the transcription/translation/trafficking machinery to
stay active)? Please email any suggestions (along with pointers to working
concentrations, etc.) to mlevin at fas.harvard.edu. Thanks very much!!
