The development of intrinsic ganglia, comprised of neurons and glia cells that innervate airway smooth muscle, is a recognized component of the growing lung. However, the embryological origin of these neurons and glia is unclear. The lung buds develop as an outgrowth of the foregut, which contains migrating neural crest cells (NCC) that ultimately give rise to the enteric nervous system (ENS) along the entire length of the gut. It has therefore been proposed that the intrinsic ganglia of the… CONTINUE READING
