E-GEOD-38381 - Chicken neural crest and neural plate
Released on 31 May 2012, last updated on 11 June 2012
Neural cest cells are a transient stem cell-like population appearing during vertebrate embryonic development. Generation of the cranial neural crest is known to require a balanced combination of FGF and BMP levels. However, it is poorly understood how the functions of such growth factors are controlled in the extracellular spaces. Here we identifiy the extracelluar matrix protein anosmin (Gga.14976.1.S1_at, clone ChEST132d10) as a novel molecule synthesized locally in the cranial neural crest of chicken embryos. Cranial neural folds (NF) and ventral neural plates (NP) were dissected from Hamburger & Hamilton stage 8 (HH8) embryos (80 to 14 embryos, n=4), and total RNA was analyzed using a GeneChip chicken genome arrays (Affymetrix)
