Chromaffin cells of the adrenal medulla are neural crest-derived cells of the sympathoadrenal lineage. Different lines of evidence suggest the existence of a subpopulation of proliferation-competent progenitor cells even in the adult state. The identification of sympathoadrenal progenitors in the adrenal would greatly enhance the understanding of adrenal physiology and their potential role in adrenal pathogenesis. Isolation and differentiation of these progenitor cells in culture would provide… CONTINUE READING
