High impact information on sparc

  • In Xenopus laevis embryos, SPARC is expressed first by dorsal mesoderm cells at the end of gastrulation and undergoes complex, rapid changes in its pattern of expression during early organogenesis [1].
  • In Xenopus, SPARC transcripts are first expressed by primordial cells which give rise to the first embryonic tissues, the notochord and somites [2].
