Researchers identify a new gene associated with Hirschprung Disease and show how the migration of cells that form the gut nervous system is impeded when the combined doses of two candidate genes are low. Understanding the genetic basis of HSCR offers hope for better diagnostics and treatment for it and other developmental defects caused by failure of cell migration.
Reprogramming skin cells from dysautonomia patients, researchers create neural crest cells which mirror aspects of the cells that cause the disease.
Researchers reveal how autonomic neurons and blood vessels come together to form the neurovascular unit.
Researchers convert adult skin cells into neural crest cells without any genetic modification.
According to researchers, the use of e-cigarettes during pregnancy may result in facial and oral cavity defects in offspring.
