Thesis Title
Antagonism of Nodal signaling by BMP/Smad5 prevents ectopic primitive streak formation in mice
Abstract
Multiple modes of regulation of the activity of Nodal are essential for anterior–posterior patterning of the epiblast and correct positioning of the primitive streak in mouse embryos. The formation of an ectopic primitive...
