“Coordination of mesoderm migration during Drosophila gastrulation” Cross-sections of Drosophila embryos in wild-type and mutant backgrounds: brown and black depicts the migrating mesoderm (anti-Twist staining) or dual-phosphorylated form of ERK (anti-dpERK), and blue depicts gene expression of either HSPGs Trol or Syndecan.
