Chemical Nodal Signaling Ligands

Name Nodal Signaling Ligands
Equivalent Terms Nodal Signaling Proteins | Signaling Proteins, Nodal
Definition Members of the transforming growth factor superfamily that play a role in pattern formation and differentiation during the pregastrulation and GASTRULATION stages of chordate development. Several nodal signaling ligands are specifically involved in the genesis of left-right asymmetry during development. The protein group is named after a critical region of the vertebrate embryo PRIMITIVE STREAK referred to as HENSEN'S NODE.
