Using zebrafish as a vertebrate model organism, we will explore how germ layer
progenitor cell fate specification affects the physical processes by which the gastrula takes shape, and, vice versa, how alterations in cell/tissue mechanics feed back onto the gene regulatory networks and signals controlling progenitor cell fate specification during gastrulation.
The human brain arises from the germ layer
called ectoderm that gives rise to nails, hairs, enamel of the tooth, sensory epithelium of the ear, nose and eye, skin.
We then measured mutations in three somatic tissues derived from each germ layer
(ectoderm: brain; mesoderm: bone marrow; endoderm: liver) using the recoverable lacZ reporter transgene within the Muta[TM]Mouse genome (Lambert et al.
Human cells derived from embryos before implantation, on the other hand, are also known to differentiate into each germ layer
, but not consistently in the lab.
As shown in Figure 4C to 4E, we confirmed the expression of three germ layer
markers, including cytokeratin17 (endoderm), vimentin (mesoderm), and neurofilament (ectoderm) from differentiated cells in the ICC analysis.
fertilized egg cell or zygote), that can generate all cell and tissue types present in an organism; Pluripotent stem cells (like embryonic stem cells) can generate the majority of cell and tissue types present in an organism; multipotent stem cells (like mesenchymal stem cells [MSC]) can generate a limited number of cell and tissue types, usually dependent on their germ layer
The first covers cell evolution and development, discussing the neural crest as a fourth germ layer
, cellular processes and signaling involved in neural crest formation, epigenetic regulation, and tissue interactions in species-specific pattern.
Cell lineage and germ layer
allocation are well studied in the echinoids S.
However, hundreds of studies have found tremendous health benefits related to whole grain consumption--grains that are intact and possess their outer layer of bran, their starchy endosperm layer, and their inner germ layer
According to Streckfuss-Bomeke et al, Germ-line Stem Cells (GSCs) are capable of self-renewal and differentiating into all germ layer
Cementoossifying fibroma is a rare nonodontogenic tumor of the periodontal membrane that arises from the mesodermal germ layer
This nonneoplastic, locally destructive tumor has occurred as an osseous lesion in the mandible, the maxilla, the zygoma, all the paranasal sinuses, and the orbital and petromastoid regions.
A shift in germ layer
allocation is correlated with large egg size and facultative planktotrophy in the echinoid Clypeaster rosaceus, 192
