Figure 4.8

A clone of Xenopus laevis frogs. The nuclei for all the members of this clone came from a single individual—a female tailbud-stage tadpole whose parents (upper panel) were both marked by albino genes. The nuclei (containing these defective pigmentation genes) were transferred into activated enucleated eggs from a wild-type female (upper panel). The resulting frogs were all female and albino (lower panel). (Photographs courtesy of J. Gurdon.)
