    Aims We investigated whether neural crest-derived cardiac resident cells contribute to the restoration of intrinsic adrenergic function following transplantation in mice. Transplanted heart shows partial restoration of cardiac adrenergic activity with time. Both the intrinsic cardiac adrenergic...

    An increasing number of genes are known to show expression in the cranial neural crest area. So far it is very difficult to analyze their effect on neural crest cell migration because of the lack of transplantation techniques. This paper presents a simple method to study the migratory behavior...

    Introduction: Ischemic stroke is a leading cause of death and disability, but treatment options are severely limited. Cell therapy offers an attractive strategy for regenerating lost tissues and enhancing the endogenous healing process. In this study, we investigated the use of human embryonic...
