Limb muscle formation involves invasion of the limb bud mesoderm by myogenic precursor cells from the dermomyotomes at limb bud level. Directed cell migration, homing, and differentiation of myogenic cells are controlled by the stationary cells of the limb bud mesoderm. At the level of the extracellular matrix, the molecular basis of migration control has been suggested to be exerted by the distribution of hyaluronan. Here, we demonstrate that N-cadherin-mediated interactions play a role at… CONTINUE READING
