Abstract

We review the early development of the frog Xenopus laevis, concentrating on events that lead to the establishment of the body plan. Recent molecular and embryological experiments suggest that peptide growth factors and homeobox genes interact to specify cell fates and pattern during early development of this vertebrate.
