During vertebrate embryogenesis, the hindbrain is the site of a segmentation process which leads to the formation, along the anterior-posterior axis, of 7-8 metameres called rhombomeres. This phenomenon plays an essential role in early hindbrain regionalisation and in the specification of the pattern of developing structures in this region of the brain. Data accumulated during the last 10 years have also shown that rhombomeres are units of gene expression and of cell lineage. Hence, a number of… CONTINUE READING
