The six4b:mCherry line expresses mCherry in the forming olfactory placodes.
mCherry expressing cells move caudally, away from the anterior midline, to form the olfactory placodes.
Sox10:GFP positive cranial neural crest cells migrate rostrally to surround the forming olfactory placodes.
Little cell-mixing is observed during the migation of Six4b:mCherry and Sox10:GFP expressing cells.
