Dual but converging roles: A tale of two crests

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The aim of this chapter is to explore the formation, specification, and contribution of pre– and post-migratory neural crest cells to organ development during mammalian embryogenesis. Specifically, we have focused on two key subpopulations — the cardiac neural crest and the trunk neural crest. By reviewing the recent stimulating published data about these two key subpopulations, we hope to shed new light on the importance of these two crest cell types and their distinct but similar roles in providing both structural and functional support to derivatives of the cardiovascular and peripheral nervous systems. We will also highlight the varying decisive roles that each neural crest lineage plays during congenital defect pathogenesis, with emphasis on their functional and structural roles in tissue differentiation and stabilisation.
