Cranial neural crest cell migration
Transgenic embryo with neural crest cells labeled with kaede photoconvertible fluorescent protein, positioned with anterior pointing toward the right of screen. The most anterior CNCC are photoconverted (from green to red) and their migration is followed. The anterior (red cells) delaminate from a cluster of cells to a sheet as they migrate in a caudal to rostral direction, contributing to the median ethmoid plate.
