Retinoids induce lumen morphogenesis


The development of most glandular organs begins with the invagination of an existing epithelial sheet into the underlying mesenchyme. The primary bud thus generated subsequently undergoes a series of morphogenetic events that culminate in the formation of branching tubes (excretory ducts) and hollow spheres (follicles, alveoli or acini). A crucial step in… (More)
