Flashcards in neural crest cell structures Deck (11):
1

peripheral nervous system

autonomic NS (vagus n, sympathetic ganglia), DRG, sensory nerves, schwann cells, CN's

2

ear

ossicles of middle ear: maleus, incus, stapes

3

eye

anterior chamber of eye:
cornea
sclera
ciliary muscles
iris pigment cells (eye color)

4

mouth

odontoblast = dentin of teeth
CREST TOOTHPASTE = TEETH

5

thyroid

parafollicular (C cells) = secrete calcitonin

6

heart

aorticopulmonary septum (spiral septum)
if malformation: truncus arteriosis or transposition of great vessels

7

digestive system

enteric nervous system
celiac ganglia

8

adrenal gland

chromafin cells of adrenal medulla = make catecholamines (NE, epi)
like sympathetic ganglia

9

skin

melanocytes

10

cartilage

thyroid cartilage
laryngeal cartilage

11

arachnoid mater
pia mater
