A change in response to Bmp signalling precedes ectodermal fate choice.

Abstract:

Bone morphogenetic protein (Bmp) signalling plays a central role in the decision of ectoderm to adopt either neural or non-neural fates. The effects of this signalling are seen at mid-gastrulation in the activation of genes such as the Gata factors and the repression of genes such as the SoxB1 transcription factors in the non-neural regions. Using zebrafish embryos, we show that this Bmp signalling does not repress the expression of these same neural markers just 2-3 hours earlier. Since expr...
