Alterations in cranial morphogenesis in the Lp mutant mouse.

Abstract

The effects of exencephaly on cranial morphogenesis were studied at 10 to 12 days of gestation in the loop-tail (Lp) mutant mouse in which the hindbrain and spinal cord fail to close. At the level of the hindbrain, the otocysts became displaced ventrally in abnormal (Lp/Lp) embryos, and the everted neuroepithelium showed a diminished "luminal" reaction to… (More)
