Title Axial rotation of murine embryos, a study of asymmetric mitotic activity in the neural tube of somite stages
Author(s) Poelmann, R.E.; Mentink, M.M.T.; Leeuwen, J.L. van
Source Anatomy and Embryology 176 (1987)1. - ISSN 0340-2061 - p. 99 - 103.
Publication type Refereed Article in a scientific journal
Publication year 1987
Keyword(s) Asymmetry - Axial rotation - Mid-gut formation - Mitotic activity - Morphogenesis - Neural tube

Axial rotation is an important event during a certain period of development of Amniote embryos. In murine embryos a sharp lordosis changes into a kyphosis. The result is the typical fetal position. In this study a temporal and topological relation is found between an asymmetric mitotic activity in the neural tube and the rotation process. The mitotic asymmetry is lost when rotation is completed. A causal relationship between mitotic activity and rotation is postulated.
