Thyroxine Induced Resorption of Xenopus Laevis Tail Tissue in Vitro.
Scadding, Steven R.
Journal of Biological Education, v18 n1 p82-84 Spr 1984
A simple method of studying thyroxine-induced resorption of tadpole tails in vitro is described. This procedure demonstrates that resorption is dependent on thyroxine and requires protein synthesis. It introduces students to the use of tissue culture methods. (Author)
