Morphology and behaviour of neural crest cells of chick embryo in vitro

  title={Morphology and behaviour of neural crest cells of chick embryo in vitro},
  author={Dr. Donald F. Newgreen and M. Ritterman and Elizabeth A Peters},
  journal={Cell and Tissue Research},
Neural primordia of chick embryos were cultured for three days and the behaviour of migrating neural crest cells studied. Somite cells were used as a comparison. Crest cells were actively multipolar with narrow projections which extended and retracted rapidly, contrasting to the gradual extension of somite-cell lamellae. On losing cell contact, somite cells were also more directionally persistent. The rate of displacement of isolated crest cells was particularly low when calculated over a long… CONTINUE READING
