- Specification of the neural crest occurs during gastrulation and requires Pax7Martin L Basch
Division of Biology 139 74, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California 91125, USA
Nature 441:218-22. 2006..Our results indicate that neural crest specification initiates earlier than previously assumed, independently of mesodermal and neural tissues, and that Pax7 has a crucial function during neural crest development...
