Early PGCs form EGCs more readily than do later PGCs, and PGCs lose the ability to form EGCs by embryonic day (E) 15.5. Here, we examined the effects...

While bFGF protein had a similar activity, notochord precursors showed a different time window of competence to respond to BMP-4 and bFGF. Our data are consistent...
