Unlocking the Bioelectric Code: How Manipulating Transmembrane Voltage Potentials Affect Patterning of Complex Structures in Xenopus Laevis.

Wan, Stephanie J.

Abstract: Understanding the mechanisms that coordinate cell migration, differentiation, and proliferation is a key goal in developmental biology. Alongside biochemical signals, it has recently been demonstrated that endogenous ion currents and voltage gradients play a role in determining cell fate. Here, we expand upon the knowledge by determining a role of biophysical events in cement gland forma... read more
