Xenopus laevis definition: The commonest and widest ranging species of the clawed "frog" (Xenopus) in Africa. This species is used extensively in research. There is now a significant population in California derived from escaped laboratory animals.

Xenopus oocyte definition: widely used in research in developmental biology because of the size and robustness of the eggs and their amenability to surgical manipulation; used to study the expression and function of isolated foreign genes and RNAs injected into them.
Xenopus Proteins definition: Proteins obtained from various species of Xenopus. Included here are proteins from the African clawed frog (XENOPUS LAEVIS). Many of these proteins have been the subject of scientific investigations in the area of MORPHOGENESIS and development.
