Cell turnover in the vomeronasal epithelium: evidence for differential migration and maturation of subclasses of vomeronasal neurons in the adult opossum.

Previous investigations of cell turnover in the mammalian vomeronasal sensory epithelium (VN-SE) raised two issues. First, if, in addition to the already demonstrated vertical migration, horizontal migration from the edges of the VN-SE participates in neuronal replacement. Second, whether or not migration and maturation is differential in upper and lower… CONTINUE READING
