D. Name:________________________________________ E. Briefly describe the new molecular event in embryo cells (short phrase or 1-2 sentences only): 24. (6 points, 2 points each) Cells move in a variety of ways during development. A. Define intercalation in a short phrase: B. Intercalation can contribute to two other types of cell rearrangements. Name them: ________________________________________________ ________________________________________________

E-55, Exam 2-2010: Name Page 7 of 8 25. (10 points, 2 points each) You isolate mesoderm and endoderm from a late-stage blastula frog embryo, dissociate the cells from their neighbors, and then put them in culture as a random mass of mixed mesoderm and endoderm cells. A. Over time, what behavior do you expect to see in the mixed mass of cells? Explain in a short phrase or 1 sentence. B. What term is used to describe this behavior? ______________________________________________________ C. What is the molecular basis for this behavior? Explain in 1-2 sentences. D. Name two other mechanisms that can drive cell movements during gastrulation. __________________________________________ __________________________________________ 26. (6 points, 2 points each) Match the following cell types from gastrula-stage sea urchin embryos (left column) with the correct type of morphogenetic movement (top right column). Use only one response from the right for each cell type. However, some morphogenetic movements may be used more than once or not at all. MOVEMENT: A. convergent extension B. delamination C. ingression D. involution E. invagination F. epiboly CELL TYPES: Primary mesenchyme _________________________________ Archenteron cells as archenteron elongates__________________ Vegetal plate cells after primary mesenchyme departs_________

E-55, Exam 2-2010: Name Page 8 of 8 27. (8 points, parts A-B 2 points each, part C worth 4 points) In a classic experiment performed by Spemann and colleagues, a baby hair was used to separate the amphibian zygote into two halves, such that (A) both halves received some gray crescent or (B) only one half received the gray crescent. The outcome of this experiment suggests that inheritance of the gray crescent may be vital for dorsal structures. A. What signaling center is formed by cells that descend from the gray crescent? ______________________________________ B. What function does this signaling center perform? Briefly state in a short phrase or 1 sentence. C. If you were to remove gray crescent cytoplasm from a donor embryo, and microinject it into a 2-cell stage host embryo (injecting it into the blastomere without gray crescent, such that the host now has mirror-image gray crescent cytoplasm areas), what would happen to the embryo? Predict the phenotype in a short phrase or 1 sentence. 27. (6 points) In a classic episode of the X-files entitled “Postmodern Prometheus,” an evil developmental biologist is experimenting with a human Hox gene most similar to the Drosophila homeotic gene proboscipedia . Mulder is unfamiliar with homeotic genes, and asks for an explanation from Scully, who does her best to remember her undergraduate biology classes. Name three key features of homeotic genes that Scully should enumerate to Mulder: Feature #1:_______________________________________________________________ Feature #2:_______________________________________________________________ Feature #3:_______________________________________________________________

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
