HypTABLE 2: Timing of hypodermal fusion events in the embryo.
Time is given in minutes after first cleavage or the stage of the embryo. For cell numbers refer to HypFIG 2. The hyp 6 syncytium is initially formed by two separate fusions (between cells I, II, III and IV and cells V and VI) that then join to make the annular hyp 6 during the elongation phase of embryogenesis.
