At either time point, NA-treated WT and CYP2A13/2F1-humanized mice displayed signs of acute olfactory epithelial injury, including detachment of the mucosa, and the appearance of sloughed cells in the nasal cavity; whereas NA-treated Cyp2abfgs-null mice had normal ethmoidal turbinates (ET) lined by a thick, pseudostratified olfactory neuroepithelium, with Bowman's glands (BG) in the submucosa.
During embryonic development of the brain, neuroblasts migrate away from the germinal layer of the ventricular neuroepithelium, mostly along the tracks of radial glial fibres.
During embryogenesis the neuroectoderm divides to give rise to neuroepithelium which further divides into neuroblast, the spongioblast and the primitive ependymocytes.
Pathologic studies have demonstrated that neuronal degeneration in maculae and cristae with neuroepithelium damage in the utricle, saccule, and ampulla of the semicircular canals are responsible for this condition.
Histologically speaking, the "subdural space" is made up by a neuroepithelium of elongated, spindle-shaped and branched cells with lax intercellular bonds surrounded by few collagen fibers and some blood vessels resulting in low mechanical resistance (11,12) (Figs.
Researchers tested several factors, and found that adding FGF19 around day 14 to the FGF2-treated cells caused several flat oval neuroepithelium to form by day 35, expressing dorsal-specific markers on the outside and ventral-specific markers on the inside.

The possibility that there were neuroepithelium alterations in some cases of NMO, which allowed the anomalous presence of AQP4 in the CSF thereby causing an autoimmune reaction and the possible generation of AQP4-Ab, could explain the physiopathology of several kinds of NMOSD such as seronegative cases for AQP4-Ab [25].
