Early Development in Selected Invertebrates Two major developmental processes occur in succession; cleavage and gastrulation Determine cell fate and major axis
Background image of page 2
Cleavage Cleavage represents a period of rapid cell division Division is not accompanied by cell growth Increase in cell number results in a decrease in cell volume Resulting cells called Blastomeres Under control of protein and RNA stored in the egg Division is extremely rapid Frog, 37,000 cells in 43 hours Drosophila, 50,000 cells in 12 hours

Cleavage Cleavage is driven by mitosis-promoting factor (MPF) Blastomeres have cell cycles with two steps, M and S
Background image of page 4
Cleavage MPF has two subunits, CyclinB and cdc2 CyclinB up-regulates cdc2 Induced cdc2 phosphorylates several factors inducing mitosis CyclinB regulated by factors in the cytoplasm When the factors are used up, the embryo has reached the mid-blastula transition (MBT)

Patterns of Cleavage The pattern of embryonic cleavage is determined by two major factors; 1) The amount and distribution of yolk in the cytoplasm 2) Factors in the egg cytoplasm that in±uence the angle of the mitotic spindle. Amount and distribution of the yolk effects where cleavage can occur and the resulting size of the blastomeres Yolk free pole is the animal pole , yolk rich pole is the vegetal pole
Background image of page 8
Main Patterns of Cleavage Isolecithal ; sparse equal yolk results in holoblastic or complete cleavage Insects, fsh, reptiles, birds have large internal yolk. This results in meroblastic or incomplete cleavage Insects have yolk in center, divisions occurring around this central yolk is superfcial cleavage

Specifcation oF Cell ±ates Cell fate is determined by cell-cell interactions or asymmetric distribution of patterning molecules Asymmetric distribution by one of three mechanisms: 1) Molecules in cytoplasm are passively acquired during division 2) Molecules are actively transported into individual cells 3) Molecules are associated with centrosomes and follow it into a cell

Gastrulation Highly coordinated cell and tissue movements where the blastula is dramatically remodeled The three germ layers are established during gastrulation Invagination , in-folding region of cells Involution , inward movement of expanding outer layer over internal side of remaining external cells Ingression , migration of individual cells from surface into interior of embryo
Background image of page 12
Gastrulation Highly coordinated cell and tissue movements where the blastula is dramatically remodeled Multilayer body plan established in gastrulation Delamination , splitting of one cellular sheet into two Epiboly , movement of epithelial sheets that spread to enclose deeper layers of the embryo, by division, change in shape, or by several layers intercalating.
