Abstract

The goal of our study is to observe early development of our vertebrate model organism while manipulating the levels of the embryonic splice variant of col2a1a. Understanding the relationship between col2a1a and embryonic development will help elucidate the function of the col2a1 splice variant during embryogenesis.

Elucidating the Function of an Evolutionarily Conserved Embryonic Splice Variant of Type II Collagen During Vertebrate Development

The goal of our study is to observe early development of our vertebrate model organism while manipulating the levels of the embryonic splice variant of col2a1a. Understanding the relationship between col2a1a and embryonic development will help elucidate the function of the col2a1 splice variant during embryogenesis.
