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.
The wandering cells are neural crest cells, which appear early in development in vertebrate embryos.
A subset of biological key events relates to the specification, migration and differentiation of neural crest cells (NCCs).
These observations are consistent with previous studies on the tumorigenesis of fetal or PSC-derived neural crest cells [81, 82].
"Now we can circumvent the iPS cells step, saving seven to nine months of time and labor and producing neural crest cells that are more similar to the familial dysautonomia patients' cells," said Gabsang Lee, an assistant professor of neurology at the Institute for Cell Engineering and the study's senior author.
The research reveals that neural crest cells' decisions occur in three phases: activation of competing genetic programs vying for the cell's attention, gradual biasing toward one of these programs and the cell's ultimate commitment.
On the physiological level, the neural crest cells give rise to the development of the adrenal glands, which play a key role in fear and stress.
