Implantation of Dkk-1-soaked Beads into the Neural Tube of Chicken Embryos
Authors:  Almudena Martinez-Ferre, Maria Navarro-Garberí, Carlos Bueno and Salvador Martinez, date: 11/05/2013, view: 5010, Q&A: 0
Chick embryos are known to be a powerful system to test gene function due to the “in vivo” accessibility, short time for results retrieval and the possibility to perform a large number of experiments. Synthetic micro-beads soaked in ...
