A role for chemokine signaling in neural crest cell
migration and craniofacial development.
Evolutionary Origins of the Neural Crest and Neural Crest Cells
A subset of biological key events relates to the specification, migration and differentiation of neural crest cells
However, the genetic changes that enabled the emergence of the neural crest cell
While protocols to generate human neural crest cells
from human embryonic stem cells have progressed since the first report 11 years ago, they still have considerable limitations for their use in basic and clinical research.
Cardiac neural crest cells
provide new insight into septation of the cardiac outflow tract: aortic sac to ventricular septal closure.
In July, three scientists proposed that certain physical features shared by domestic animals, described as domestication syndrome, might all result from mild defects in the function of cells known as neural crest cells
(SN: 8/23/14, p.
Lab animals with defects in neural crest cell
migration are known to have smaller adrenal glands.

The process requires growing the skin cells in a bath of proteins and chemical additives while turning on a gene to produce neural crest cells
, which give rise to several adult cell types.
However, it is unknown whether the GMSCs are derived from cranial neural crest cells
(CNCC) or the mesoderm.
The researchers engineered a noninvasive magnet-based technology to create fever-like conditions in two specific temperature-sensitive ion channels called TRPV1 and TRPV4 in the neural crest cells
involved in developing the heart and face.
