Abstract

Recent studies have revealed asymmetries in the mouse zygote and preimplantation embryo, well before the establishment of anterior-posterior polarity after implantation. Whether these asymmetries are causally related to embryonic patterning or are coincidental outcomes of the topology of normal development remains uncertain.
