Developmental Biology

Life Cycles and Developmental Stages


Developmental stages l.jpg

Developmental Stages

  • Dividing embryogenesis into stages allows for easier description of embryonic events

  • Stages should follow logical, observable changes in the embryo

  • Refinement of classical embryological stages with the advent of molecular technology has occurred

Later Development

Organogenesis

Larval molts

Metamorphosis

Aging

Rapid cell divisions

Drosophila 8’, Xenopus 20’

no transcription

S and M phases only

mammals 12-24 hr, chick 6-12 hr

transcription occurs

Produces a hollow embryo

blastocoel

mesoderm induction

signals from endoderm induce ectodermal cells

Developmental Stages


Developmental stages6 l.jpg

Formation of gut

Complex cell movements to arrange trilaminar embryo and set up body plan

Major movements are of the mesodermal cells

Positioning of mesodermal cells to interior of embryo

Early Development

Fertilization

Cleavage

Gastrulation

Neurulation

Larval molts

Metamorphosis

Aging

Developmental Stages


Developmental stages7 l.jpg

Cell movements occur in distinct ways in different genera

Invertebrates

invagination of cells on the future ventral side

Vertebrates

fish & amphibians

spherical embryos

involution of mesoderm on future dorsal side at blastopore lip

Aging

Developmental Stages


Developmental stages8 l.jpg

Vertebrates

Reptiles, birds and some mammals (humans)

disc embryos

delamination of ectoderm to form endoderm & mesoderm

delaminating cells involute at Henson’s node, primitive streak and groove form & progresses along dorsal midline

mammals (mouse)

cup embryos

ingression at the dorsal midline (primitive streak) as in chick and human

Arthropods

form CNS from region from neural cells that are displaced from the neuroectoderm

Developmental stages10 l.jpg

Vertebrates

Dorsal ectoderm is induced by the notochord to become neural tissue

Ectoderm turned into neural tissue is called the neural plate

Neural plate cells change shape & fold into neural tube

neural crest

transition zone between neural plate & ectoderm becomes neural crest

crest cells leave dorsal neural tube & migrate throughout embryo differentiating into multiple cell types

melanocytes – pigment cells

peripheral nervous system – sensory and motor nerves

adrenal gland
