Slide 1

Chapter 21 General Embryology

Slide 2

---a science which study the processes and regulations of development of human fetus.(from 1 cell(zygote) to (5-7)X1012 cells )

---total 38 weeks:

  • preembryonic period: before 2 weeks

Slide 3

  • embryonic period: 3-8 weeks

  • fetal period: after 9 weeks

    *perinatal stage: 26 weeks to birth

    *Teratology: abnormal development of fetus

Slide 4


---definition: the process by which the male and female gametes(sperm and ovum) unite to give rise to zygote

---place: in the ampullary region of the fallopian tube

Slide 5


1) maturation of oocyte

2) maturation of spermatozoon:

/ductus epididymus: 2-3 weeks, forward motility protein

Slide 6

3)capacitation of spermatozoa:

  • decapacitation factor: exist in epididymus, to inhibit the release of acrosome enzymes

  • capacitation factor: secreted by epi. cells of oviduct, capacity of releasing acrosome enzymes

Slide 7

4)quality and quantity of spermatozoa:

  • 2-6 ml, 100,000,000/ml,

  • <1.5 ml; or <10,000,000; abnormal sperm >30%; or capacity for mobile< 70%

    5) meeting of sperm and ovum

  • sperm: 20-24h

  • ovum: 15-18h(1-3ds)

Slide 8

---processes of fertilization:

1)acrosome reaction:

/hyaluronic acidase: dissolve corona radiate

* interact with ZP3(receptor glycoprotein, exist in zona pellucide) molecules, release

/acrosin: dissolve zona pellucide

/enter perivitelline space

Slide 9

2) spermatozoa fuse with the membrane of ovum: nucleus enter cytoplasm of ovum

3) monospermy:

  • cortical reaction: cortical granules(located in cytoplasm of ovum) are released into perivitelline space, and cause

  • zona reaction: change of ZP3 molecules in zona pellucide

    4) formation of zygote(fertilized ovum)

  • secondary meiosis complete: form second polar body

  • male pronucleus fuse with female pronucleus, to restore the 2n chromasome

Slide 10

---significance of fertilization:

1) a new life begin(initiation of cleavage)

2)restoration of the diploid number of chromosomes: cross-over

3) determination of the sex of the new individual:

  • ova(22+X) + X-bearing spermatozoon = girl

  • ova(22+X) + Y-bearing spermatozoon = boy

    *klinefelter’s syndrome: 47XXY, 48XXXY

Slide 11

2. Blastocyst formation and implantation

Slide 12

Slide 15

2) Implantation

---definition: the process by which the blastocyst is embedded in endometrium

---time: 5th–6th day begin; 11th–12th day complete

Slide 16

---processes: zona pellucide disappear → polar trophoblast touch the endometrium→secrete proteolytase →dissolve the endometrium → embedded into endometrium→coagulation plug seal the space

Slide 19

/endometrium →decidua:

-decidua basalis

-decidua capsularis

-decidua parietalis


/endometrium is in secretory phase

/morula reach the cavity of uterus on time

/zona pellucide disappears in time

Slide 20
