A Review of Histogenesis/Organogenesis in the Developing by William J. Krause


By William J. Krause

A renewed curiosity is starting to emerge spotting the potential for marsupials as particular types for biomedical study. as a result of their abbreviated interval of intrauterine improvement, marsupials are obtainable versions with which to review the early improvement of mammalian organ structures. The North American opossum (Didelphis virginiana) has obtained extra clinical scrutiny than the other marsupial to this point. the aim of volumes I and II is twofold. the 1st objective is to attract jointly and in brief summarize the morphologal occasions and aiding quantitative info keen on the histogenesis/organogenesis of some of the organ platforms during this specific species. the second one aim is to supply an advent into the literature with reference to the biology of Didelphis virginiana and to assemble jointly quite a few reports that experience concerned with this species. quantity I summarizes gametes and fertilization, blastocyst formation and early organogenesis, fetal membranes and placentation, parturition and migration to the pouch, normal postnatal progress and improvement, and histogenesis/organogenesis of the integument, musculoskeletal procedure, cardiovascular approach, blood and blood forming organs, lymphatic organs, anxious process, eye, and ear. quantity II summarizes the histogenesis/organogenesis of the breathing procedure, digestive process, urinary method, male reproductive process, woman reproductive procedure, and classical endocrine system.

Orangutans: Geographic Variation in Behavioral Ecology and Conservation

This ebook describes one in every of our closest family, the orangutan, and the single extant nice ape in Asia. it's more and more transparent that orangutan populations exhibit wide version in behavioral ecology, morphology, lifestyles background, and genes. certainly, at the energy of the most recent genetic and morphological facts, it's been proposed that orangutans truly represent species which diverged greater than one million years in the past - one at the island of Sumatra the opposite on Borneo, with the latter comprising 3 subspecies.

Example text

A well-developed apical endocytic complex, and large supranuclear membrane-bound vacuoles further characterize cells of the proximal tubule. The apical endocytic complex consists of a system of tubular invaginations that arise from the apical plasmalemma between the bases of microvilli. The tubules forming the endocytic complex contain an electron-dense, amorphous material. Small vacuoles also are associated with the endocytic complex. Nuclei are confined to the basal half of the cells and are ovoid or spherical in shape.

The apical plasmalemma shows scattered stubby microvilli. The basal plasmalemma is smooth, whereas the lateral cell membranes show extensive implication with those of adjacent cells. The cytoplasm contains scattered mitochondria, free ribosomes and occasional proffies of granular endoplasmic reticulum. The morphological features of the mesonephroi remain unchanged from those of the newborn for 4 days into the postnatal period. 5 cm SRL), the mesonephros appears slightly curved and shrunken at its cranial pole.

The cecal diverticulum also appears early in the 12th prenatal day. Growth of the small intestine and colon as indicated by total wet weight is shown in Table 18. Progressive growth occurs prior to and after weaning with no obvious difference between female and male animals. A dramatic increase in weight occurs after weaning. Relative to body weight, the weight of the gut remains constant during the first two postnatal weeks, declines slightly, then markedly increases at 60 days postnatal (10 cm SRL) (Table 19).
