The ontogeny of the neural crest in avian embryo chimaeras

Abstract

The migration and subsequent development of autonomie ganglion cell precursors can be followed in suitably constructed chimaeric quail–chick embryos, thanks to the distinctive structures of quail and chick interphase nuclei. The decisive role of environmental factors arising from non-neuronal tissues on the chemical differentiation of neurones was demonstrated together with the lability of their phenotype during ontogeny.
