Paging mouse growth genes reveals movement hotspots

Cornell University researchers have found specific mouse growth genes that move from the subtally open gut, into the developing stomach, namely a section in the large intestine.
The new study, published in the journal Cell Stem Cell and led by Andrea Durand, professor of Biomedical Engineering in the Cornell University College of Engineering, assessed 39 gene expression networks in mice.
“Microendody uses a fetus’ stomach to seed it with proteins to grow in the developing stomach,” said lead author Susan Williams, a graduate student in Cornell’s BIO5 program.
