Axons arrest the migration of Schwann cell precursors.


The neural crest gives rise to a variety of cell types including Schwann cells of the peripheral nervous system. Schwann cell precursors begin to differentiate early and migrate along specific pathways in the embryo before associating with nerve trunks. To determine whether motor axons direct the migration of Schwann cell precursors along specific pathways… (More)
