"APUD" cells fact and fiction

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Pearse's "APUD" cell theory helps define the ontogeny and differentiation programs of small polypeptide hormone-secreting cells of diverse tissue origins. Cells with such features may arise through one of multiple related pathways of epithelial cell differentiation ongoing in tissues of all embryonic lineages.
