Studies on the reeler mutation have shown that pioneer Cajal-Retzius (CR) cells are involved in neuronal migration in the developing cortex. Here, we use grafting and coculture experiments to investigate the mechanisms by which CR cells govern migration. We show that transplantation of embryonic CR cells, but not other cortical neurons, into adult cerebella(More)
We have analyzed the developmental pattern of beta-galactosidase (beta-gal) expression in the cerebral cortex of the beta 2nZ3'1 transgenic mouse line, which was generated using regulatory elements of the beta 2-microglobulin gene and shows ectopic expression in nervous tissue. From embryonic day 10 onward, beta-gal was expressed in the medial and dorsal(More)
