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.
