Transplantation of previously decapsulated gastrulated embryos yields a survival and growth rate similar to that of control embryos, suggesting that experimental manipulations and decapsulation of gastrulated embryos do not permanently hinder embryonic development.
However, the embryos gastrulated almost normally if they had been attached after primary invagination.
