Pattern Formation in Zebrafish

2002 XVIII, 438 p. 95 illus., 17 in color. Hardcover
Recommended Retail Price: EUR 199,00 *

Vertebrate embryos develop from a single cell via a complex 
succession of cell divisions, movements and inductive interactions. 
The zebrafish, Danio rerio, emerged in recent years as an excellent 
system in which to study genetic underpinnings of normal human 
development and its pathologies. Large-scale genetic screens 
identified thousands of mutant variants that allow in vivo dissection 
of developmental processes at single cell and molecular resolution. 
This book provides the first comprehensive overview of zebrafish 
embryogenesis: formation and patterning of germ layers, 
gastrulation movements, and aspects of organogenesis, including 
formation of somites, cardiovascular system, pronephros and eyes. 
Keywords: Axis Formation, Danio, Embryogenese,
