Outer layer: ectoderm -epidermis (skin) -nervous system Inner layer: endoderm -lining of the gut -digestive organs Middle layer: mesoderm -organs -connective tissue -blood It is not birth, marriage, or death, but gastrulation, which is truly the most important time in your life.
LEWIS WOLPERT The sea urchin larva (pluteus) blastula Sea urchin fate map Sea urchin lineage Hrstadius: Role of sea urchin micromeres in inducing the fates of other blastomeres The sea urchin larva (pluteus) Sea urchin gastrulation blastopore: first opening in the blastula wall created by gastrulation archenteron: primitive gut primary mesenchyme cells form spicules blastopore secondary mesenchyme cells assist in archenteron extension Archenteron extension in sea urchin gastrulation
archenteron convergent extension blastopore Gastrulation creates the body plan of the sea urchin larva Protostomes vs. deuterostomes Protostomes ("mouth first"): blastopore becomes the mouth [molluscs, arthropods (insects), worms] Deuterostomes ("mouth second"): blastopore becomes the anus; mouth forms second [echinoderms, vertebrates] Gastrulation in an insect (protostome) Extension of the germ band during Drosophila gastrulation Gastrulation creates the body plan of the Drosophila larva Gastrulation creates the body plan of the Drosophila larva Anterior midgut invagination Polarization of the amphibian embryo along the A/V axis originates in the egg The major axes of the animal body (caudal) (rostral) The point of sperm entry defines the D/V axis of the frog embryo Fate maps of the Xenopus (frog) blastula Gastrulation begins at the future dorsal side of the Xenopus embryo ...
