FROG FLIPSIDE: Jonathan M. Graff of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center discovered that Xmad1 induced ventral mesoderm while Xmad2 induced dorsal mesoderm in frog embryos.
To the untrained eye, frogs and flies have little in common. But to cellular and molecular biologists, these creatures offer scientists significant insight on intracellular signaling cascades that mediate a diverse array of biological processes in animals from insect to human. Jonathan M. Graff, an investigator at the Center for Developmental Biology in the department of molecular biology and oncology at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in...
