Key findings:

  • Four stages of dermomyotome/myotome development are defined.

  • The interstitial matrix around thde dermomyotome and myotome is rich in fibronectin.

  • Fibronectin and tenascin are enriched at intersegmental borders and penetrate into the myotome.

  • Laminin matrices line the dermomyotome and myotome.

  • These laminin matrices are disassembled as the dermomyotome dissociates and the myotome transforms into the epaxial muscle masses.
