Role of Prdm1a in zebrafish neural crest development, The
Understanding how cell fate decisions are regulated by signaling pathways and transcription factors is key to understanding how embryonic development takes place. Neural crest cells are an embryonic cell type that must undergo several cell fate choices and changes in gene expression before they are able to finally differentiate and contribute to adult tissues. Neural crest cells are formed at the border between developing neural and non-neural ectoderm in a region called the neural plate border. They are induced by several signaling factors and specified by the expression of transcription factors ...
