The distribution and time of appearance of cells with gastrin/CCK-, neurotensin- and somatostatin-like immunoreactivity were studied in samples from eight regions of the gastrointestinal tract of chick embryos from 11 days of incubation to hatching. No immunoreactive cells were found in any region at 11 days of incubation. Somatostatin- and(More)
Little being known about factors necessary for insulin cell differentiation, we tested the chance observation that these cells were virtually absent from collagen gel cultures of embryonic avian pancreas in which the other pancreatic endocrine cells were numerous. Five-day dorsal buds stripped of their enveloping mesenchyme were embedded in gel and overlaid(More)
The times of first appearance and the distribution of APP- and glucagon-immunoreactive cells have been established in the embryonic chick gut between 11 days of incubation and hatching. These immunoreactive cell types appeared for the first time at 13 days of incubation, APP-immunoreactive cells in the duodenum and upper ileum and glucagon-immunoreactive(More)
In the avian lung, the bronchial system forms from epithelial (endodermal) cells. The intrapulmonary primary bronchus is the focal point of airway development. It originates secondary bronchi (SB) along its proximal-distal extent and parabronchi (tertiary bronchi) arise from and connect the SB. From as early as day 3.5, fibroblast growth factor-2 (FGF-2) is(More)
