AbstractDuring early embryonic development, cell migration is one of the most important morphogenetic processes. Neural crest cells arise from the dorsal part of the neural tube and migrate along different pathways to numerous locations where they differentiate into a variety of tissues. In the mouse, studies of neural crest cell migration have been difficult partly because of the absence of specific markers which can label neural crest cells throughout their migration from their origin to the site of differentiation. Nevertheless, the use of different experimental strategies involving extrinsic, intrinsic or genetic cell markers has already led to a good understanding of this migration. In our studies, extrinsic markers such as wheat germ agglutinin-gold conjugates and DiI and genetic markers including Hoxb2-lacZ and green fluorescent protein have been employed in tracing migrating neural crest cells. The labelling procedures and the strength and weaknesses of the tracing methods are reviewed herein. Copyright © 2003 S. Karger AG, Basel.
