BACKGROUND In vertebrate embryos, migration of trunk neural crest cells (NCC) proceeds mainly in two streams: a dorsoventral path between the neural tube and somites, and a dorsolateral one between somites and ectoderm. This last pathway is taken by melanocyte precursor cells (MPC) homing the skin, while pigment cells seeding internal organs and the peritoneal wall follow the dorsoventral pathway. Early routes taken by subpopulations of NCC have been well documented using the quail-chick… CONTINUE READING
