  • Phosphorylation Dynamics Dominate the Regulated Proteome during Early Xenopus Development

    Peuchen et al. published in Scientific Reports their study making quantitative measurements of the Xenopus phosphoproteome beginning with stage VI oocytes, oocyte maturation to a fertilizable egg, and three time points following fertilization.

  • Regulatory remodeling in the allo-tetraploid frog Xenopus laevis

    In this study, published in Genome Biology, Elurbe et al. identify non-allelic homologous recombination between old repeats as the likely source of deletions that happen much more frequently on the S subgenome in X.laevis.

  • Proteomics of fertilization in the Xenopus egg

    Presler et al. present comprehensive measurements of the biochemical events governing the cell cycle and blocks to polyspermy after fertilization. Published in PNAS, the study introduces new methods to systematically calculate phosphosite occupancy.

  • New X. laevis 9.2 and X. tropicalis 9.1 GFFs

    Xenbase GFF tracks for X. laevis 9.2 and X. tropicalis 9.1 official genomes are now available on Xenbase FTP and GitLab account!

    View on JBrowse: trop and laevis.
     
    GFFs were created by merging NCBI and JGI GFF files.

  • The Zahn Drawings

    A new developmental series for Xenopus, ‘the Zahn drawings’ and a complementary set of bright field photographs have been published in Development. These drawings provide researchers with views of the tadpole stages during cranial development, NF stage 22-50.

  • Comprehensive analyses of hox gene expression in Xenopus laevis embryos and adult tissues

    Kondo et al. published in Developement, Growth, and Differentiation their analysis of two homeologous sets (L and S) of four hox gene clusters A through D and 13 paralogous groups. Read the article to see the expression of 76 genes during developement and in adult tissues.
