The microenvironment is thought to play a key role in the control of neural crest cell diversification. To investigate its role in melanocyte differentiation we mapped the temporal and spatial distribution of pigmented melanocytes in embryonic chick skin and determined, by experimental means, the route taken by migrating melanocytes in the skin. We show that the New Hampshire Red/Black Australorp crossbreed exhibits melanization from 5 days of incubation (2 1/2 days earlier than is reported i...Expand abstract
