The tissue interactions between endodermal epithelium and mesenchyme originated from splanchnic mesoderm are essential during the formation of digestive tract. In this review, we introduce a series of works to elucidate the molecular mechanisms of the epithelial-mesenchymal interaction of stomach development in mainly the chicken embryo. We also describe some molecular studies in mouse stomach development.
