The embryonic chick face is composed of a series of facial primordia, epithelium-covered buds of mesenchyme, which surround the presumptive mouth. The protruding adult upper beak containing the prenasal cartilage is formed from the frontonasal mass, the paired maxillary primordia form the sides of the face, while the lower beak is derived from the paired mandibular primordia which contain the two Meckel's cartilages. When grafted to a host wing bud, the frontonasal mass and the mandibular… CONTINUE READING
