Knowledge of the morphogenetic events involved in the development of the dorsal portion of the neural tube is important for understanding neural tube closure, neural crest cell formation and emigration, and the origin of neural tube defects. Here, I characterize the progressive development of the tips of the neural folds during fold elevation in the trunk of mouse and chick embryos and the events leading to formation of the dorsal portion of the neural tube as the epidermal ectoderm (EE) and… CONTINUE READING
