Transcript of Germ Layers Ppdf

  • Formation of Germ Layers
  • Highlights Fertilization . Sex determination. Cleavage . Formation of germ layers.
  • Highlights Fertilization . Morula = 16 cells ovum Trophoblast = outer cell layer that covers the inner cell mass in the Morula. Blastocyst = morula with the inner cell mass is separated from trophoblast by fluid.
  • Highlights (continue) Embryonic disc = the cells of the inner cell mass multiply, and arranged to form an embryonic disc having two germ layers. Amniotic cavity = a cavity appears on the ectodermal side of the disc. Yolk sac = a cavity appears on the endodermal side .
  • Highlights (continue) Extra-embryonic mesoderm = this separate trophoblast from the amniotic cavity and the yolk sac. Extra-embryonic coelom = a cavity appears and splits the Extra-amniotic mesoderm into Somatopleuric layer and Splanchnopleuric layer.
  • Blastocyst with an inner cell mass and trophoblast.
  • Highlights (continue) Somatopleuric (parietal) layer in contact with trophoblast. Splanchnopleuric (visceral) layer in contact with yolk sac. Chorion = a membrane consists of trophoblast and underlying Somatopleuric mesoderm.
  • Highlights (continue) The cells forming the wall of the amniotic cavity form the Amnion. The connecting stalk = A mesoderm attaches the amniotic cavity to trophoblast, into which the extra-embryonic coelom does not extended
  • Highlights (continue) Prochordal plate = a rounded area near one edge of ectoderm in the embryonic disc where ectoderm and endoderm are not separated by mesoderm. Primitive streak = an elevation is seen on the embryonic disc If a line is drawn between the primitive streak and the prochordal plate the embryonic disc is divided into right and left halves.
  • Highlights (continue) Mesoderm = 3rd germ layer from cell of the primitive streak (move between ectoderm and endoderm). Cloacal membrane = a round area caudal to the primitive disc. It is made up only of ectoderm and endoderm.
  • Details
  • Fertilization Fertilization of the ovum occur in the ampulla of the uterine tube. As soon as the spermatozoon enters the ovum, 2nd meiotic division is completed. Ovum becomes the FEMALE PRONUCLEUS. The head of spermatozoon becomes the MALE PRONUCLEUS. (head separates from the middle piece and tail).
  • Fertilization (continue) Pronuclei lose their nuclear membrane. These 46 chromosomes undergo changes like those in a typical mitotic division having two cells. There is NO one-cell stage of the embryo
  • Sex Determination The sex of a child is determined at the time of fertilization. All ova contain 22 - X chromosome. Spermatozoa contain either 22-X or 22-Y. If the sperm is X-bearing, The zygote has 44-XX chromosomes. The offspring is a girl. If the sperm is Y bearing, The zygote has 44-XY chromosomes. The offspring is a boy. It is clear that one chromosome of each of the 23 pairs is derived from the mother and other from the father.
  • Test Tube Babies In vitro fertilization = outside the body. In vivo = within the body
  • Cleavage
  • Age (in days) Developmental events 2 Embryo is two-cell stage 3 Morula is formed 4 Blastocyst is formed 8 Bilaminar disc is formed 14 Prochordal plate and primitive streak is seen 16 Intra-embryonic mesoderm/ 3 layered disc
  • Cleavage The process of subdivision of ovum into smaller cells. As cleavage proceeds the ovum comes to have 16 cells = morula. Morula ; looks like mulberry. still surrounded by zona pellucida. consist of inner mass + trophoplast.(outer layer). The inner cell mass gives rise to the embryo proper, and is therefore, called the Embryoblast. The cells of the trophoblast help to provide nutrition to the embryo.
  • Cleavage (continue) Some fluid passes into the morula separates the inner cell mass from the trophoblast. As the quantity of fluid increases, the morula acquires the shape of cyst. The cells of the trophoblast become flattened, and the inner cell mass comes to be attached to the inner side of the trophoblast only, The morula has become a (blastocyst).
  • Cleavage (continue) Morula has now become blastocyst. The cavity of blastocyst is called blastocoele. The side of the blastocyst to which the inner cell mass is attached is called the Embryonic pole (or animal ). While the opposite side is the abembryonic pole. Zona pellucida prevent implantation of the blastocyst at an abnormal site.
  • Function of Zona Pellucida Trophoblast : able to stick to uterine (or other) epithelium. able to eat-up other cells can invade and burrow into tissues. Zona Pellucida prevent it from sticking to the epithelium during the travel of embryo down the uterine tube.
  • Function of Zona Pellucida (continue) The embryo receives nutrition partly from the substances stored in the ovum, and partly by diffusion from uterine secretion. Additional source of nutrition is achieved when the blastocyst sticks to the uterine endometrium, and gets implanted to it. Zona pellucida disappears soon after the morula reaches the uterine lumen.
  • Function of Zona Pellucida (continue)!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Zona pellucida lacks histocompatibility antigens and acts as a barrier that separate maternal tissues from the embryo, After disappearance of Zona pellucida ::::::::::.??????!!!!!!!!!
  • Function of Zona Pellucida (continue) (various immunosuppressive cytokinase and proteins are produced by the implanting embryo. This block the recognition of embryo as a tissue foreign to the mother).
  • Formation of Germ Layers. Blastocyst gives rise to the tissue and organs of the embryo, also gives rise to a number of structures that support the embryo and help it to acquire nutrition. At a very early stage the embryo proper acquires the form of three-layered disc, this is called EMBRYONIC DISC. The embryonic disc (embryonic area, embryonic shield, or germ disc) is consist of three layers: 1. Endoderm. 2. Ectoderm. 3. Mesoderm .
  • Formation of Germ Layers.(continue) Blastocyst further changes: 1.Endoderm = 1st germ layer. Formed from flattened cells of the inner mass. 2.Ectoderm = 2nd germ layer. Formed from columnar cells of the inner mass. 3.Amniotic cavity = (filled by amniotic fluid or liquor amnii) a space between ectoderm (below) and the trophoblast (above). Amniogenic cells form the roof, while the floor is formed by ectoderm. 4.Primary yolk sac = The blastocystic cavity is lined on all sides by cells of endodermal origin. This lining membrane is called (Heusers membrane). This cavity is called the primary yolk sac. @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@ @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@
  • Formation of Germ Layers. / Blastocyst further changes (continue) 5.The cells of the Trophoblast give origin to a mass of cells called the EXTRA-EMBRYONIC MESODERM (or primary mesoderm). EXTRA-EMBRYONIC MESODERM: does not give rise to any tissues of the embryo itself. lies outside the embryonic disc. lies between the trophoblast and the lining of yolk sac. separates the wall of the amniotic cavity from the trophoblast. 6. Small cavities appear in the EXTRA-EMBRYONIC MESODERM, these join together to form EXTRA-EMBRYONIC Coelom (chorionic cavity).
  • Formation of Germ Layers. / Blastocyst further changes (continue) The EXTRA-EMBRYONIC MESODERM is split into two layers. a) Somatopleuric (parietal) extra-embryonic mesoderm = lining inside of the trophoblast, and outside of the amniotic cavity.= chorionic plate. b) Splanchnopleuric (visceral) extra embryonic mesoderm = lining the outside of the yolk sac. Connecting stalk = part of EXTRA-EMBRYONIC MESODERM attaching the embryo, amniotic cavity and the yolk sac to the wall of the blastocyst.
