Cover legend

Antisense Xoom RNA causes defects in Xenopus gastrulation. Embryos were injected with 5 ng of antisense Xoom RNA into the animal pole of both blastomeres at the 2-cell stage. Left: vegetal view of control embryo at st. 11.5. Right: vegetal view of the embryo injected with antisense Xoom RNA at st. 11.5. Antisense RNA injected embryos failed to close the blastopore. For details see "Xoom: a novel oocyte membrane protein maternally expressed and involved in the gastrulation movement of Xenopus embryos" by K. Hasegawa et al., in this issue.
