Cellular clock regulating human spine development

More than 20 years ago, the lab of developmental biologist Olivier Pourquié discovered a sort of cellular clock in chicken embryos where each “tick” stimulates the formation of a structure called a somite that ultimately becomes a vertebra.advertisement In the ensuing years, Pourquié and others further illuminated the mechanics of this so-called segmentation clock across […]
