Prior to first cleavage the dorsal/ventral polarity of the amphibian egg is established. That polarity can be altered by ultraviolet irradiation. Although embryos irradiated with low doses of UV apparently develop normally through gastrulation, various defects in neural morphogenesis become apparent. Among these defects are abnormalities in the structure of the notochord. In some embryos the notochord is partially defective, while in others it is completely lacking. Detailed analyses of those embryos with the scanning electron microscope generated novel interpretations concerning the role of the notochord in early pattern formation.
