Absence of Cajal-Retzius cell

DA: 575

Developmental anomaly information

Definition: The term Cajal–Retzius cell is applied to reelin-producing neurons of the human embryonic marginal zone which display, as a salient feature, radial ascending processes that contact the pial surface, and a horizontal axon plexus located in the deep marginal zone.Cajal–Retzius cells produce reelin, pointing to the spatiotemporal control of reelin expression as a key feature of cortical evolution.
