Xine Volume 6 supplement 1

Xine Volume 6 supplement 1 - January 2006

Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to Xine, the source for Xenopus news and information. Here's what's happening...

A special request from Mike Klymkowsky

As part of a project on analyzing gene networks in the early embryo, we are trying to find all published papers using hormone-regulated proteins in Xenopus.

We can find a number (perhaps most), but sometime such experiments are hidden away. It would help quite a bit if authors who have used hormone-regulated proteins in Xenopus could send the reference(s) to Mike. klym@spot.colorado.edu

Call for content

Xine could be used to disseminate information and protocols of general utility to the research community. In order for this to occur, please send any such contributions to the editor who will include them in a future (or special) issue of Xine.

If you wish to read Xine in html format and/or see back issues, they are available at the following places
