Early development of cyprinid teleosts is summarized with special attention to gastrulation. Making use of comparison with Xenopus, functions are suggested for the uncleaved yolk cell, concerning induction and patterning processes before and during gastrulation. It is concluded that cyprinid development has a number of very specific aspects, involving morphogenesis and, very likely, gene functions. This should be realized when gene expression patterns during development are studied in this group of teleosts as a model of development in higher vertebrates.
