Mechanisms of vertebrate neural plate internalization.
https://doi.org/10.1387/ijdb.200122ca
The International Journal of Developmental Biology; Araya C, Carrasco D

Sep 15th, 2020 - The internalization of multi-cellular tissues is a key morphogenetic process during animal development and organ formation. A good example of this is the initial stages of vertebrate central nervous system formation whereby a transient embryonic s...
