... Now - the arguments. Nucleic-acid-peptide molecular technology we have already considered. And now - eyes. With all the great variety of eye, inducers that control tab in the ontogeny of the eye are the same for all studied taxa, including vertebrates and jellyfish. Moreover, the settlement ...

Cytoplasmic Determinants/Signal Induction

... the nuclei that results from mitotic division is then exposed to different cytoplasmic environments. b.) What is the source of signal molecules (inducers)? Signal molecules come from embryonic cells themselves. Embryonic cells send signal molecules to other nearby embryonic cells to alter their ...
