 Title    Cooperation of Compartments for the Generation of Positional Information  
 Abstract    A mechanism is proposed for pattern formation in developmental subfields. In application to imaginal disks, the compartmentalization appears as a prerequisite for the generation of posi­ tional information in the proximo-distal dimension. Cooperation of three or four compartments in the production of a morphogen leads to a cone-shaped morphogen distribution, since a high production rate of the morphogen is possible only at the intersection of compartment borders. The local concentration of the cone-shaped distribution is a measure for the distance from this center and can be used as positional information. In agreement with the experimental observa­ tions, the model predicts that (i) the distalmost structures are formed at the intersection of compartment borders; (ii) distal transformation occurs whenever cells of all compartments come close to each other; (iii) distal transformation does not require a complete set of circumferential structures; (iv) mutants exist in which the positional information and not the response of the cells is altered and (v) no distal to proximal intercalation of missing leg segments occur. Regeneration and formation of supernumerary insect legs can be explained as well. Simple molecular reaction can account for this type of pattern formation. The "complete circle rule" of French, Bryant and Bryant (Science 193,969-981 (1976)) for distal transformation may be simplified by a "coopera­ tion of compartments" rule.

 Title    Differentiation in Volvox carteri: Study of Pattern Variation of Reproductive Cells  
 Abstract    Asexual spheroids of the multicellular green alga Volvox are composed o f two types o f cells: non-flagellated reproductive gonidia and Chlamydomonas-\ike flagellated somatic cells. They are committed by a differentiating cleavage during embryogenesis. The gonidia o f the adult spheroids form a symmetrical pattern consisting o f four layers o f four gonidia each; their position is established already in the embryos by the gonidial initials. Whereas, generally, the 16-gonidia pattern is assumed to be the basic one, most o f the spheroids have fewer gonidia (down to 8). The nine possible gonidial patterns (8 to 16 gonidia) are described and correlated to the gonidial stem cells which have been differentiated. Defects in gonidial pattern are o f particular interest, since any model of differentiation has to explain not only the basic pattern formed, but also its systematic variations. Our study shows that the pattern reduction is by no means random, but governed by an intrinsic mechanism which shifts the first unequal cleavage from the 32-celled stage to the 16-celled stage. All the patterns formed can be deduced from cleavage pathways involving non-synchronous differentiation of the stem cells. Thus, pattern formation can be correlated to timing and spacing signals regulating events during embryogenesis.

 Title    Growth Control and Pattern Regulation in the Lateral Line Systems of Xenopus  
 Abstract    In Xenopus, the supraorbital lateral line system consists of a periodic pattern of lateral line organs which is formed by the regular fragmentation of a streak-like primordium. The pattern forming mechanism which subdivides the primordium into individual organs is not capable of adjusting to the variable size of the system. Nevertheless, the number of organs per supraorbital system tends to be held constant. This is achieved by regulating the growth of the system in an appropriate manner.
