Version of Record online: 18 NOV 2011 | DOI: 10.1002/dvdy.22785

Key findings:

  • Specification of epibranchial placode-derived nodose ganglion requires both Neurog1 and Neurog2.

  • Specification of neural crest-derived parasympathetic otic ganglion requires both Neurog1 and Neurog2.

  • Loss of Neurog genes associated with the complementary loss of visceral sensory (nodose) and parasympathetic (otic) ganglia due to apoptosis.

  • Neurog1 and Neurog2 are transiently expressed in the neural crest fated for the parasympathetic otic ganglion lineage.
