Mouse Head (E9.0) Neural Crest (GFP)

Neural crest cells are a migratory cell population that give rise to the majority of the cartilage, bone, connective tissue, and sensory ganglia in the head.

E9.0 wild-type embryo obtained by intercrossing C57BL/6 Pax3GFP and DBA Tcof1 +/− mice to quantify the number of migrating cranial neural crest cells in flow cytometry analyses. Neural crest cells (GFP-labeled) contribute to the frontonasal process (fnp), the mesenchyme surrounding the optic placode (op), and the maxillary (mx) and mandibular (md) prominences of the first branchial arch (ba1), as well as the more caudal branchial arches. fb, forebrain; mb, midbrain; hb, hindbrain.
