The neural crest

Nicole Le Douarin, Chaya Kalcheim

Research output: Book/ReportBook


"This fully revised edition of The Neural Crest contains the most current information about the neural crest, a structure unique to the vertebrate embryo which has only a transient existence in early embryonic life. The ontogeny of the neural crest embodies the most important issues in developmental biology, as the neural crest is considered to have played a crucial role in evolution of the vertebrate phylum." "This new edition also covers recent advances in our understanding of markers of neural crest cell subpopulations. Cell lineage analysis is a field in neural crest development that has also significantly contributed to an understanding of the phenotypic segregation of neural crest cell subpopulations, and a full chapter is now devoted to this issue." "This book is for students and researchers in developmental biology, cell biology, and neuroscience." "Developmental and Cell Biology Series 36"--Jacket.
