The neural crest differentiates into cells, such as ganglion cells, Schwann cells, melanocytes, and adrenal medullary chromaffin.
The cranial neural crest cells develop into many important structures of the head and face, and 90 percent of the gingival stem cells were found to be N-GMSC.
These conditions can be distinguished by the color of the retina, whose cells do not originate in the neural crest (red in albino, wild-type in leucistic and progressive graying) and ontogenetic changes incolor (Raven et al.
Neural crest cells manifest early in the development of a vertebrate embryo.
Because impaired neural crest (NC) function is one of the known causes for teratologic effects, testing of toxicant effects on NC cells is desirable for a DT test battery.
