Connective tissue in gut development: a key player in motility and in intestinal desmosis.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Efficient intestinal peristalsis is a function of intact enteric nervous system, muscle, and connective muscularis propria tissue. Malfunction of any component results in impaired peristalsis. Hirschsprung disease (HD) as prototypic enteric neural migration disorder is increasingly well characterized.
