Fusion of branchial arch derivatives is an essential component in the development of craniofacial structures. Bilaterally symmetric branchial arch processes fuse in the midline to form the mandible, lips, and palate. The mechanism for fusion requires several different morphologic and molecular events prior to the completion of the mesenchymal continuity between opposing tissue processes. The ectodermal covering of the branchial arches is one of the cell types that has an important role during… CONTINUE READING
