 DEVELOPMENTAL BIOLOGY: ON THE NOTOCHORD   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
In its "mature" state, the notochord is a rod of large cells constrained by a thick extracellular sheath and positioned between the developing spinal cord and gut.
Turgor pressure generated by notochord cells exerted against the sheath gives the notochord stiffness, imparting the mechanical properties required for one of its main functions as the central axial skeletal element of the developing embryo.
For the notochord enthusiast, the most astounding thing about this is that the majority of tissue derived from the graft is notochord, while the induced second axis is derived mostly from the host.
