2. Cardiac development with color coding of morphologically related regions, seen from a ventral view. Cardiogenic precursors form a crescent (left-most panel) that forms specific segments of the linear heart tube, which is patterned along the anterior-posterior axis to form the various regions and chambers of the looped and mature heart. Each cardiac chamber balloons out from the outer curvature of the looped heart tube in a segmental fashion. Neural crest cells populate the bilaterally symmetric aortic arch arteries (III, IV, and VI) and aortic sac (AS) that together contribute to specific segments of the mature aortic arch.
