  22. A central concept in developmental biology is that of a morphogen, a substance that specifies cell identity as a function of its concentration. A continuous gradient of morphogen concentration can elicit a set of unique cellular responses at a finite number of threshold concentrations: above the threshold, one response is elicited; below it, cells respond differently.
