Cover Legend

The cover shows the response to FGF16 of pluripotent cells explanted from Xenopus embryos. The explants shown at the top of the image have not been treated and have formed a ball of ciliated epidermis. When the pluripotent cells are exposed to FGF, the explants give rise to organoid-like structures that include mesodermal derivatives such as skeletal muscle, smooth muscle and fibroblasts surrounded by a layer of epidermis. The explants exhibit a threshold response to FGF as can be seen by the centre-bottom treated explant that has not been induced. For more details, see paper by Elsy et al. pp. 631-639 in the current issue.
