Keratinocyte Growth Factor Stimulates Growth of p75<sup>+</sup> Neural Crest Lineage Cells During Middle Ear Cholesteatoma Formation in Mice

pubmed: wnt1 2023-01-29


During development, cranial neural crest (NC) cells display a striking transition from collective to single-cell migration and undergo a mesenchymal-to-epithelial transformation to form a part of the middle ear epithelial cells (MEECs). While MEECs derived from NC are known to control homeostasis of the epithelium and repair from otitis media, paracrine action of keratinocyte growth factor (KGF) promotes the growth of MEECs and induces middle ear cholesteatoma (cholesteatoma). The animal model...
