Homologous (similar in position, structure, function, or characteristics) though larger cells differentiate to form chromaffin cells (cells that stain readily with chromium salt) of organs like the adrenal medulla (inner portion of the adrenal gland).
The adrenal gland refers to either of two small, triangular, endocrine glands found above the kidneys. This gland is actually two fused organs, with one forming the inner core or medulla and the other forming an outer shell, or cortex. The cortex and medulla each secrete distinct kinds of hormones that regulate important bodily functions.3. An embryonic cell that develops into a sympathetic nerve cell.
