Nodal signaling in early vertebrate embryos: themes and variations.

Author information

Department of Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School, 240 Longwood Avenue, Boston, MA 02115, USA.


The nodal family of TGFbeta-related ligands have emerged as critical regulators of early vertebrate embryogenesis. Recent studies in mice, fish, and frogs of nodals and their intracellular transducers allow a comparison of how this signaling pathway is used in the patterning of early embryos of these different vertebrates.
