Ultrastructural analysis of the transdifferentiation of smooth muscle to skeletal muscle in the murine esophagus


The ultrastructure of the mouse esophagus at the level of the diaphragm was studied from embryo day 17 to adult. The transdifferentiation of smooth muscle into skeletal muscle was categorized into seven ultrastructural stages: during phase I normal smooth muscle myogenesis was observed. In phase II subpopulations of cells changed into aggregates of myoblast… (More)
