Neural crest cells provide species-specific patterning information in the developing branchial skeleton.


The skeletal elements of the branchial region are made by neural crest cells, following tissue interactions with the pharyngeal endoderm. Previous transplantation experiments have claimed that the cranial neural crest is morphogenetically prespecified in respect of its branchial skeletal derivatives, that is, that information for the number, size, shape… (More)
