Keywords navigation



Protein involved in gastrulation, a stage in early embryogenesis in which cell movements result in a massive reorganization of the embryo from an initially unstructured group of cells, the blastula, into a multi-layered organism. During gastrulation, the primary germ layers (endoderm, mesoderm, and ectoderm) are formed and organized in their proper locations for further development.
