Eisen, J.S. and Weston, J.A. (1993) Development of the neural crest in the zebrafish. Developmental Biology. 159:50-59.
The embryonic zebrafish is rapidly becoming an important model system for studies of early events in vertebrate development. We review recent work describing the development of zebrafish neural crest and experimental studies examining the cellular, molecular, and genetic mechanisms of crest development.
