Use "mesodermal" in a sentence
"Hydra are wonderful experimental animals in that one can ablate stem cells for a particular tissue type, and still get an animal that develops and lives; do the same thing to a vertebrate, for instance knocking out the mesodermal lineage in the embryo, and you get an aborted blob."
"Hox genes are primary regulators of the body plan along the length of the animal; they are expressed in overlapping zones that specify morphological regions of the body, such as cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral/pelvic, and caudal mesodermal tissues, where, for instance, a thoracic vertebra would have one kind of shape with associated ribs, while lumbar vertebra would have a different shape and no ribs."
"The remaining mesodermal tissue is then consistently shown in the same orange-red ignoring the overlap with the ectodermal derivatives noted above, but only until we get out to the extraembryonic mesoderm, which shows up in yet another, lighter shade of orange."
