TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Divisions of embryology


Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN

General embryology

  • Gametogenesis: conversion of germ cells into male and female gametes
  • 1st week of development: ovulation to implantation
  • 2nd week of development: bilaminar germ disc
  • 3rd week of development: trilaminar germ disc 
  • 3rd to 8th week: embryonic period
  • 3rd month to birth: fetus and placenta

 Special embryology

  • Skeletal system 
  • Cardiovascular system
  • Respiratory system
  • Nervous system, etc…. systems

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Meiosis creates genetic diversity



Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Each individual gamete contains either maternal or paternal version of each chromosome

→ the choice of maternal or paternal occurs independently and randomly for each pair of homologous chromosomes

  • Crossing-over :  the maternal and paternal versions of each chromosome undergo genetic recombination during meiosis
  • Sexual reproduction gives organisms a competitive advantage

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

In case pregnancy occurs

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG), secreted by the placenta, maintains the corpus luteum for 3 months → corpus luteum of pregnancy
  • Grows to a diameter of 5 cm and continues to secrete hormones necessary for the maintenance of pregnancy
  •  Placenta becomes the main site of production of the various hormones involved in maintaining pregnancy, but corpus luteum continues to form these hormones for several months

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Meoisis vs Mitosis

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Meoisis - a diploid precursor cell gives rise to haploid progeny cells
  •  Mitosis - a diploid precursor cell gives rise to diploid progeny cells;

 In vertebrates, only the diploid cells proliferate: the haploid gametes exist only briefly, do not divide at all, and are highly specialized for sexual fusion

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Mesoderm vs mesenchyme

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Mesoderm refers to cells derived from the epiblast and extraembryonic tissues
  •  Mesenchyme refers to loosely organized embryonic connective tissue regardless of origin

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

3rd-8th week → embryonic period

(= period of organogenesis)

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Each of the 3 germ layers (ectoderm, mesoderm, and endoderm) gives rise to a number of specific tissues and organs
  • By the end of the 2nd month, the main organ systems have been established → the major features of the external body form are recognizable

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Twins

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  •  Dizygotic (fraternal)

> 70% of twins; 7-11 per 1000 births

> ovulation of 2 oocytes and fertilization by 2 different spermatozoa → may or may not be of different sex; no more resemblance than any other brothers or sisters

  • Monozygotic (identical)

> 30% of twins; 3-4 per 1000 births 

> 1 oocyte & 1 spermatozoonsplitting of the zygote at various stages of development (2-cell stage or blastocyst stage or bilaminar disk stage)

  • Triplets are rare (about 1/7600 pregnancies), birth of quadruplets, quintuplets, and so forth is rarer

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Stages of prenatal development

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Preembryonic stage – weeks 1 & 2
  • Embryonic stage – weeks 3 ÷ 8
  • Fetal stage - months 3 ÷ 9

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Spermiogenesis (transformation of spermatids into spermatozoids)

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  •  Golgi phase
  • Cap phase
  • Acrosomal phase
  • Maturation phase

TESTE DEIN WISSEN

Specific characteristics of female meiosis

Lösung anzeigen
TESTE DEIN WISSEN
  • Begins during embryonic life (1st month)
  • Stop and start mechanisms

- arrested after diplotene of meiosis I

→ meiosis I is complete after puberty

> meiosis I is completed at the time of ovulation

> meiosis II is completed only if the released oocyte is fertilized

  •  It takes nearly 40 years for some human oocytes to complete meiosis
  • High error rates – 20% of aneuploidy → most of these result from nondisjunction in oocytes at meiosis I
  • If homologous chromosome segregation fails to occur normally, the cells continue through meiosis and produce aneuploid eggs
  • By the end of meiosis, a mammalian oocyte is fully mature
