Abstract

The neural crest is a cell type unique to vertebrates that gives rise to a diverse set of derivatives essential to the vertebrate body plan. The formation and subsequent diversification of neural crest cells is a complex multistep process dependent on the reiterative use of multiple intracellular-signaling pathways. Notable among these is the Wnt-signaling pathway, which plays prominent roles at multiple stages of neural crest development.
