Cell migration plays a fundamental role in a wide variety of biological processes including development, tissue repair and disease. These processes depend on directed cell migration along and through cell layers. Chemokines are small secretory proteins that exert their effects by activating a family of G-protein coupled receptors and have been shown to play(More)
The cloaca acts as a common chamber into which gastrointestinal and urogenital tracts converge in lower vertebrates. The distal end of the cloaca is guarded by a ring of cloacal muscles or sphincters, the equivalent of perineal muscles in mammals. It has recently been shown that the development of the cloacal musculature depends on hindlimb muscle(More)
In vertebrates, muscles of the pectoral girdle connect the forelimbs with the thorax. During development, the myogenic precursor cells migrate from the somites into the limb buds. Whereas most of the myogenic precursors remain in the limb bud to form the forelimb muscles, several cells migrate back toward the trunk to give rise to the superficial pectoral(More)
