Striated myogenesis and peristalsis in the fetal murine esophagus occur without cell migration or interstitial cells of Cajal.

Abstract

Esophageal striated myogenesis progresses differently from appendicular myogenesis, but the mechanism underlying this process is incompletely understood. Early theories of transdifferentiation of smooth muscle into striated muscle are not supported by transgenic fate-mapping experiments; however, the origin of esophageal striated muscle remains unknown.
