Organism ImageXenopus laevis (African clawed frog)

African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) is an important model organism for cell and developmental biology.

Lineage: Eukaryota[8697]; Metazoa[4225]; Chordata[2098]; Craniata[2075]; Vertebrata[2075]; Euteleostomi[2058]; Amphibia[29]; Batrachia[26]; Anura[25]; Pipoidea[4]; Pipidae[4]; Xenopodinae[2]; Xenopus[2]; Xenopus[1]; Xenopus laevis[1]
The tetraploid Xenopus laevis is native to Africa. X. laevis used to study vertebrate biology and early embryonic development and as a model for biomedical research. Xenopus studies have been instrumental in the elucidation of biochemical processes such as intracellular signaling, cytoskeletal assembly, and chromosome replication. More...
