Embryonic development

This period is also considered the organogenic perio when most organs within the embryo have begun to form. There are links to more detailed descriptions .

This page is organised to show week by week human development features and approximate timing of key events with more detailed information about specific events in different systems.

For a less detailed timeline see week by week. Note: The weeks refer to embryonic development and differ from .

Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo forms and develops. In mammals, the term refers chiefly to early stages of prenatal development , whereas the terms fetus and fetal development describe later stages. In biological terms, human development entails growth from a one-celled zygote to an adult human being.

Fertilisation occurs when the sperm cell successfully enters and fuses . PCDXmcQjM Lignende 18. Lastet opp av HCL Learning HCL Learning DigiSchool presents you animated study material on Embryonic Development. The resulting zygote must divide and form a blastocyst. The blastocyst much reach the uterus and implant in the endometrium.

The implanted blastocyst continues its development into an embryo and then a fetus.

At any point in this process problems can occur that interfere with a successful pregnancy. Throughout this chapter, we will express embryonic and fetal ages in terms of weeks from fertilization, commonly called conception. The period of time required for full development of a fetus in utero is referred to as gestation (gestare = “to carry” or “to bear”).

It can be subdivided into distinct gestational periods. In plants, the term embryogenesis covers development from the time of fertilization until dormancy occurs. The major challenges of embryogenesis are.

During the course of development, cells divide, migrate, and specialize. Human embryonic development depends on stem cells. These cells are able to produce all the tissues of the body. Later in development, during gastrulation, the three germ. The gene architecture of its chromosomes is responsible for the control of embryonic development.

The zygote stage begins upon fertilization of the secondary oocyte by the sperm. Early Embryonic Development. The zygote contains both pro-nuclei and is contained within the zona pellucida, until the blastocyst stage. Watch to learn what the inner cell mass, trophoblast cells and blastocyst are, as well as their functions within embryonic development. The fertilized egg is called a zygote.

This lesson focuses on embryonic development and the stages of. Shortly after fertilization, the zygote begins to grow and develop. It divides to form two cells, then four, then eight, and so on.

Apoptosis, or programmed cell death, is a mechanism in embryonic development that occurs naturally in organisms. Apoptosis is a different process from cell necrosis, which is uncontrolled cell death usually after infection or specific trauma. As cells rapidly proliferate during development, some of them . We developed digital scanned laser light sheet fluorescence microscopy and recorded nuclei localization and movement in entire wild-type and mutant zebrafish embryos over the first hours of development. Multiview in vivo imaging at 1. Here, we show that senescence occurs during mammalian embryonic development at multiple locations, including the mesonephros and the endolymphatic sac of the inner ear, which we have analyzed in detail. Mechanistically, senescence in both structures is strictly dependent on p2 but independent of . We have compiled all our resources on post- embryonic development to make it quicker and easier for you to find our latest protocols and pathway cards.

Spatiotemporal control of gene expression is a crucial part of the mechanisms that establish patterns of different cell types in embryos. To gain a deeper understanding of this fundamental aspect of development it will be important to analyse how regulatory transcription factors (TFs) function to control gene expression.
