Contribution of connective tissue cells to myogenesis: an unexpected role for the CXCL12/CXCR7 axis

position and a net-like ECM structure appears between the continuously detaching notochord and the endoderm midline. We suggest that this temporary ECM structure may play a role in attracting (or guiding) migrating cells towards the midline, and in forming a border that prevents migrating cells from crossing the midline. In this way the ECM net-like… CONTINUE READING
