Cell sorting in embryonic organs http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/bv.fcgi?rid=dbio.figgrp.384 1. Dissociate embryonic organs 2. Combine 3. Cells reaggregate 4. Sort according to organ type 5. Specific patterns of aggregation Differential adhesion hypothesis (Steinberg): Cells sort due to differences in adhesive properties (could be quantitative or qualitative)
