Development of an Acute Method to Deliver Transgenes Into the Brains of Adult Xenopus laevis

Frontiers in Neural Circuits

Nov 13, 2018

Ayako YamaguchiPaulo Rodrigues

Abstract

The central vocal pathway of the African clawed frog, Xenopus laevis, is a powerful vertebrate model to understand mechanisms underlying central pattern generation. However, fast and efficient methods of introducing exogenous genes into the neurons of adult X. laevis are currently not a...read more
