Vera S. Hunnekuhl and Carsten Wolff Reconstruction of cell lineage and spatiotemporal pattern formation of the mesoderm in the amphipod crustacean Orchestia cavimana Developmental Dynamics 241

Article first published online: 28 FEB 2012 | DOI: 10.1002/dvdy.23758

Key findings:

  • Trace of the mesodermal layer from 8-cell stage up to somatic musculature by using a combination of advanced life imaging, in-vivo cell labeling and computer aided reconstruction.

  • Strict cell division pattern generates stereotypic cell arrangement of mesodermal precursors.

  • Gastrulation follows an invariant spatial and temporal pattern.

  • Clear border between naupliar (head) mesoderm and somatic (trunk) mesoderm.

  • Somatic muscle groups are generated by specific mesoteloblasts.
