From the foregoing analysis of past research on chondrogenesis of the somitic mesoderm it is evident that much has been learned of the differentiative abilities of the mesoderm and of the role of tissue-tissue interactions in the evocation of chondrogenesis. The major events occuring in the sclerotome, in the ventral spinal cord and in the notochord during development of the embryonic chick have been summarised in Table 10.
