Xine Volume 6 supplement 1 - January 2006
Welcome to Xine, the source for Xenopus news and information. Here's what's happening...
A special request from Mike Klymkowsky
As part of a project on analyzing gene networks in the early embryo, we are trying to find all published papers using hormone-regulated proteins in Xenopus.
We can find a number (perhaps most), but sometime such experiments are hidden away. It would help quite a bit if authors who have used hormone-regulated proteins in Xenopus could send the reference(s) to Mike. firstname.lastname@example.org
