This is mostly attributed to the poor understanding of the exact molecular mechanisms directing the embryonic development of dopaminergic neurons, which is the basis for the differentiation of stem cells to dopaminergic neurons.
The researchers from RMIT University have for the first time incorporated the natural processes of embryonic development to build a material that can more naturally communicate with stem cells for effective tissue repair.
A similar effect was achieved by the application of temperatures higher and lower than the optimum during the first days of spider embryonic development (Jacunski and Templin, 2003; Templin et al.
Their topics include gut health and susceptibility to enteric bacterial disease in poultry, understanding and boosting poultry immune systems, leg disorders in poultry: bacterial chondronecrosis with osteomyelitis (BCO), the effect of incubation temperature on embryonic development in poultry, the contribution of environmental enrichment to sustainable poultry production, and developments in humane slaughtering techniques for poultry.
The researchers identified a protein called agrin, which is expressed during embryonic development but stops shortly after birth.
The researchers found that while most transcription factors are incapable of binding to DNA sequences containing methylated cytosine, some transcription factors actually prefer the methylated version, including some factors that play a key role in embryonic development, and in the development of prostate and colorectal cancers.

However, little information is available on the effect of flavonoids on oocyte maturation and embryonic development in pigs.
To conduct research on this native species, knowledge of the early stages of fish embryonic development is extremely important.
This is important because differences between species in the embryonic development and architecture of the adult stomach make mouse models less than optimal for studying human stomach development and disease, Wells added.
To investigate the possibility of in ovo infection with avian bornavirus (ABV) in wild Canada geese (Branta canadensis), 53 eggs were opportunistically collected at various stages of embryonic development from 16 free-ranging goose nests at a large, urban zoo site, where ABV infection was known to be present in this species.
The clusters are necessary for both fin and limb formation during embryonic development.
