Abstract

The enteric nervous system is large, complex, and independent of the CNS. Its neural-crest-derived precursors migrate along defined pathways to colonize the bowel. Recent studies of the sequential actions of essential growth and transcription factors have revealed that enteric neuronal development involves a complex interaction of lineage-determined and microenvironmental elements.
