原始语种摘要: Studies of chick–quail chimeras have reported that avian ultimobranchial C cells originate from the neural crest. It has consequently been assumed, without much supporting evidence, that mammalian thyroid C cells also originate from the neural crest. To test this notion, we employed both Connexin43-lacZ and Wnt1-Cre/R26R transgenic mice, because their neural crest cells can be marked. We also examined the immunohistochemical expression of a number of markers that identify migratory or postmigratory neural crest cells, namely, TuJ1, neurofilament 160, nestin, P75NTR, and Sox10. Moreover, we examined the expression of E-cadherin, an epithelial cell marker. At embryonic day (E)10.5, the neural crest cells densely populated the pharyngeal arches but were not distributed in the pharyngeal...
