The ENS resembles the brain and differs both physiologically and structurally from any other region of the PNS. Recent experiments in which crest cell migration has been studied with DiI, a replication-deficient retrovirus, or antibodies that label cells of neural crest origin, have confirmed that both the avian and mammalian bowel are colonized by émigrés from the sacral as well as the vagal level of the neural crest. Components of the extracellular matrix, such as laminin, may play roles in… CONTINUE READING
