Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
1The layer of embryonic tissue that forms prior to the development of the embryonic axis.
- ‘We examined Fumble staining during the mitotic divisions of the cellular blastoderm.’
- ‘Apparently, there is little similarity between the simultaneous subdivision of the blastoderm into parasegments seen in Drosophila and the posterior addition of segments from a sub-terminal growth zone seen in many crustaceans.’
- ‘Early development is essentially two-dimensional; patterning occurs mainly in the blastoderm, the superficial layer of the embryo that consists first of nuclei and later of cells.’
- ‘In the fruit fly, segments are genetically delimitated early and simultaneously, when the embryo still is a blastoderm and the process of segmentation does not involve somites.’
- 1.1 The outer layer of cells that forms the wall of a blastula.
- ‘When the egg is laid, the blastoderm contains several hundred cells.’
- ‘At cellular blastoderm most of the EAR protein is associated with cells at the periphery, while some protein is still associated with yolk nuclei.’
- ‘When the membranes surrounding the peripheral nuclei fuse to form the 6000 cells of the cellular blastoderm, they enclose 175-225 polyploid yolk nuclei within a large syncytial yolk cell.’
- ‘Pole cells cease dividing after the formation of the cellular blastoderm.’
- ‘As a result, the blastodisc on the yolk becomes a blastoderm.’
