Primary palatogenesis involves an intricate array of events. Cell migration, proliferation, differentiation, programmed death, and fusion occur. Prior to fusion, the morphology of the epithelium undergoes marked changes. Epithelial projections form and extend across the fusion site attaching by filopodia to the opposite prominence. By appearance, the epithelium plays a critical role in facial development. In order to monitor epithelial activities, a study was done to isolate and characterize…

Changes in nasal morphology during primary palate formation in the C57BL/6J mouse embryo as revealed by transmission electron microscopy and histochemistry
The morphological changes in nasal fin epithelium and its basal lamina as the fin regresses are looked at and the spatial and temporal distribution of filamentous actin (F-actin) at the time of primary palate formation is described.
Expression patterns of connexin43 protein during facial development in the chick embryo: Associations with outgrowth, attachment, and closure of the midfacial primordia
The patterns of distribution of Cx43 protein in embryonic chick facial primordia were examined in detail and the possible roles played by this protein during midfacial development were considered.
