This review deals with research on the development and differentiation of the neural crest (NC) in amphibians carried out during the past twenty years. First, earlier studies on the migration and differentiation of NC cells in vitro are summarized. These studies include the modes of NC cell migration and their differentiation into chondroblasts, perichondral cells, neurons, Schwann cells and pigment cells (melanophores and xanthophores). Then a summary is given on the development of cranial… CONTINUE READING
