Selective affinities Inner surface of ectoderm (+) for mesoderm Inner surface of ectoderm (-) for endoderm Mesoderm (+) for both ectoderm and endoderm Thus… because of these affinities… The cells sort into their proper positional relationships Over time, these selective affinities can change – just because you start out for an affinity for one cell group, the affinity can change as you develop and become more adherent to another type cell.

Conclusions of the Experiments 1) Reaggregated cells become spatially segregated 2) Final positions reflect embryonic positions 3) Selective affinities changes* - (as these change, it seems they will sort themselves along the lines of the most thermodynamic stable relationship

Histotypic Aggregations Reconstruction of complex tissues from individual cells (trypsinized embryos) Reaggregation of 15 day mouse epidermal cells – mouse is very will differentiated. Epidermal – keratinized (ectoderm) Dermal layer (mesoderm) Can also see hair follicles If you put these into a Ca-deficient medium and add trypsin to them (cleaves proteins), the cells will separate apart (see figures 3.25 and 3.26 in your book)

Differential Adhesion Hypothesis Cells interact to form an aggregate with the smallest interfacial free energy – thermodynamically stable pattern ( hence a thermodynamic model ) Sorting requires cell types differ in their strength of adhesion May be based on - Same glue molecules (differ in amounts of glue) - Different glue molecules with varying strengths
