Neural Tube Defect-causing Teratogens Affect Tissue Mechanical Properties and Cytoskeletal Morphology in Axolotl Embryos

The teratogenic drugs cytochalasin B and valproic acid have been shown to alter F-actin polymerization, an effect that is crucial in forming microfilaments. Microfilaments form important cytoskeletal structures that maintain the structural integrity of the cell, cause cell motility and cell migratio...
