The expression pattern of each myogenic regulatory factor (MRF) during embryonic development highlights three successive myogenic waves in Xenopus somites.
A first median and lateral myogenesis initiates before dermomyotome formation in Xenopus.
Xenopus craniofacial myogenesis is characterized by the presence of Myf5- or Myod-lineages.
