Western clawed frog (Xenopus (Silurana) tropicalis) is an important model organism for studies in cell and developmental biology.

Lineage: Eukaryota[13169]; Metazoa[6095]; Chordata[2857]; Craniata[2829]; Vertebrata[2829]; Euteleostomi[2799]; Amphibia[59]; Batrachia[56]; Anura[39]; Pipoidea[6]; Pipidae[6]; Xenopodinae[3]; Xenopus[3]; Silurana[1]; Xenopus tropicalis[1]
The Western clawed frog, Xenopus (Silurana) tropicalis, is native to Africa and is an important model organism for the study of developmental genetics and vertebrate biology. In contrast to the African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) which has a tetraploid genome and was used in the early years of embryological research, the Western clawed More...
