Gastrulation: Germ Layer Formation o during gastrulation , 3 primary germ layers form in embryo from raised groove called primitive streak 3 layers are: o some mesodermal cells form a rod called notochord, which serves as axial support for embryo Kevin Kelleher, MTC Biology 211 Study Notes Exam 4 16 o endoderm & ectoderm consist of epithelia, while mesoderm consists of mesenchyme (star-shaped cells free to migrate within embryo) - Organogenesis: Differentiation of Germ Layers o specialization of ectoderm: neurulation induced by chemical signals from notochord neural plate forms over notochord, & folds inward as neural groove with neural folds superior margins of neural folds fuse to form neural tube anterior end of neural tube becomes brain ; rest becomes spinal cord
