Using genetic lineage tracing, Saxton and Pawson found that in SHP2-deficient mouse, ESCs were accumulated in the posterior epiblast of the gastrulating embryo rather than migrating through primitive streak and showed limited differentiation capacity toward ectoderm tissue.

At the sampling time 38 h post-fertilization, the three treatments varied significantly in the distribution of stages present: high-oxygen embryos were all prisms, while some low-oxygen embryos had not yet begun gastrulating. At this particular sampling time, each oxygen treatment showed a statistically distinct distribution of developmental stages (chi-square tests, P < 0.001 for each pairwise comparison).
