Abstract

Einsteck procedure refers to a method whereby the experimenter inserts material into the blastocoel cavity of an early amphibian embryo. This procedure is simpler to perform than other types of grafts, such as Spemann-Mangold, and with practice yields a sizable amount of data suitable for statistical analysis. This protocol for Einsteck transplantation in Xenopus describes the insertion of the gastrula-stage blastopore lip into the blastocoel cavity of a host embryo.
