Object Description

8-cell embryos of the crustacean, Parhyale hawaiensis, injected with FITC-Dextran.  In the right three embryos, the injected cell is the "g" micromere (which gives rise to the germline), and in the left embryo, the injected cell is the "Mav" macromere (which gives rise to the visceral mesoderm and somatic mesoderm of the head).
