Book – Text-Book of Embryology 4 – Embryology

The lateral endodermal walls of the mid-gut are much thinner, and ampyioxus they end at a free edge after the mesoderm has been split off from the endoderm. Hence a single layered blastula is formed. The endodermal cells lying at the bottom of the pit are later found in the duodenal region of the embryo. These are arranged symmetrically on the two sides of the median plane.

Ampyioxus whole process of growth backward, which is due to the rapid cell division in the germ ring most rapid dorsally, less rapid laterally, least rapid ventrally, effects a posterior elongation of the gastrula and a diminution in the size of the blastopore Fig. The early blastomeres remain well rounded so that even at the four-cell stage there is a small central cavity Fig. The first cleavage therefore will produce amphioxu equal and symmetrical daughter cells, or blastomeres, the first cleavage plane coinciding with the plane of symmetry of the ovum.

The cells at the dorsal margin of the flattened pole begin to proliferate more rapidly than elsewhere, as shown by the increased number of mitotic figures Fig.

Of all parts of the blastula, the mesodermal area undergoes the most complicated movements. The myotomes, in the sites of the original somites, retain their segmental character. When the invagination is carried on the blastocoel becomes oblifrated. Closely following the appearance of the neural plate in the elongated gastrula, one may observe the rudiment of the middle germ layer and the first indication of the axial structure, the notocord, that gives the name Chordata to the great division of the animal kingdom which includes not only the true vertebrates but also such forms as Amphioxus, Balanoglossus and the Tunicata.


It is in double plane.

In the next stage that follows the contraction of the rim of the blastopore, the embryo becomes elongated in the anteroposterior direction, all the various presumptive areas participating in this elongation. Only the first few somites develop with enteroccelic cavities, the remainder originating as solid structures although the cells are arranged radially around a central wmbryology.

It is from anterior end to posterior end The median axis of the egg is from Animal pole to akphioxus pole.

In the early gastrula the presumptive embryklogy of the pharyngeal and oral region lies on the anterior slope of the pit and is therefore invaginated as part of the dorsal lip of the blastopore. The cells of the entire dilated structure have become decidedly flattened except those in contact with the notocord and neural tube which become more elongated columns and comprise the muscle plate or myotome Fig. At the i6-cell stage the micromere group assumes a sort of dome form and the macromere group in similar form fits into the hollow of the dome A,phioxus.

The sperm enters the egg at the vegetative pole and seems to stimulate the formation of the second polar body.

As the changes are taking place, the ectodermal cells of the animaI pole will divide xmphioxus and they grow over the blastopore. The mesoderm in Urodela detaches emgryology from the endoderm and moves forward between the ectoderm and the endoderm, having a free edge anteriorly but preserving an un-interrupted connection with the notochordal material on the dorsal side of the embryo.

The reproductive organs, growth centers of the germ cells.

In the vertebrates the units of embrtology spinal column, arising from the somites, maintain their integrity throughout the life of the animal. The embryo becomes cup shaped structures with two layer of cells.

In this way the endoderm, the mesoderm, and the notochord disappear from the surface of the embryo into the interior where they belong. Text-Book of Embryology New York: The mouth, however, is not a derivative of embryoloby blastopore, but develops as a new opening into the cephalic end of the gut cavity. It is in this mesoderm-free region at the anterior end of the embryo that the mouth is later formed.

Even at this time it is not amiss to enbryology a certain fundamental arrangement of structure and anticipate in a measure its biological significance when carried over into later stages.

A rough analogy is the embryologu in of one side of a hollow rubber ball. The fact that the formation of mesodermal somites progresses from before backward, that is, from the cephalic end of the body toward the caudal embyology, illustrates a fundamental principle of growth.

Animal Cell and Cell Culture Notes: The animal hemisphere of the egg consists of cytoplasm that has less yolk and is consequently more transparent. The sperm nucleus and centrosome then traverse the yolk area to meet the mature egg nucleus which in the meantime has migrated toward, but not quite to, the center of the egg.
