Vertebrate organs develop from epithelial and mesenchymal tissues, and during their early development they share common morphological features. These include condensation of the mesenchymal cells and thickening, folding or branching of epithelial sheets. Sequential and reciprocal interactions between the epithelial and mesenchymal tissues play central roles in regulation of the morphogenesis of all organs. During recent years increasing amounts of molecular data have accumulated from studies… CONTINUE READING
