Embryonic stem cells (ES) cells were injected into host blastocysts either in groups of 10-15 cells or as single cells in order to test their developmental potential in the developing embryo. The analysis of midgestation chimaeras, by electrophoretic separation of glucose phosphate isomerase (GPI) isozymes, showed that ES cells were capable of colonizing trophectoderm and primitive endoderm derivatives at a low frequency, as well as producing a high rate of chimaerism in tissues of the fetus and extraembryonic mesoderm.. ...

A complementary DNA, Tes-1, of a novel homeodomain protein has been cloned, and its pattern of expression has been characterized. It is a structural homolog of Distal-less, a homeodomain-encoding gene in D. melanogaster. Its expression is developmentally regulated and is limited to structures in the head. Within the central nervous system of the midgestation mouse embryo, it is expressed exclusively in the ventral forebrain. It is likely that Tes-1 plays a regulatory role in the development of this complex neural structure. ...

Artificial Womb Unlocks Secrets of Early Embryo. Pioneering work by a leading University of Nottingham scientist has helped reveal for the first time a vital process in the development of the early mammalian embryo.. A team led by Professor of Tissue Engineering, Kevin Shakesheff, has created a new device in the form of a soft polymer bowl which mimics the soft tissue of the mammalian uterus in which the embryo implants. The research has been published in the journal Nature Communications.. This new laboratory culture method has allowed scientists to see critical aspects of embryonic development that have never been seen in this way before. For the first time it has been possible to grow embryos outside the body of the mother, using a mouse model, for just long enough to observe in real time processes of growth during a crucial stage between the fourth and eighth days of development.. Professor Shakesheff said: "Using our unique materials and techniques we have been able to give our research ...
The roles of BMP and Pax in the embryonic development have been extensively studied in recent years and the formation of the neural tube is usually described as a self-evident process, but formation of nervous system in human embryos has actually not been examined in detail. In the present study 40 human embryos at Carnegie stages (CS) 10-20 were obtained, and the expression of BMP-2, BMP-4, Pax2, Pax6 and Pax7 proteins were examined in the developing brain. 22 rat embryos of CS 14, 18 and 20 were employed to compare the BMP-2, BMP-4 and Pax2 expression in the developing spinal cord of human and rat embryos throughout early stages of the nervous system development. To detect expression of proteins the method of immunohistochemistry was used. BMP-2 and BMP-4 are essential signalling molecules for the formation of the neural tube in human embryos as their expression was seen throughout all studied developmental stages 10-20. The expression of both proteins, BMP-2 and BMP-4, had a tendency to ...

Rapid and precise phenotyping analysis of large numbers of wild-type and mutant mouse embryos is essential for characterizing the genetic and epigenetic factors regulating embryogenesis. We present a novel methodology that permits precise high-throughput screening of the phenotype of embryos with both targeted and randomly generated mutations. To demonstrate the potential of this methodology we show embryo phenotyping results produced in a large-scale ENU-mutagenesis study. In essence this represents an analysis pipeline, which starts with simultaneous micro-magentic resonance imaging (microMRI) screening (voxel size: 25.4 x 25.4 x 24.4 microm) of 32 embryos in one run. Embryos with an indistinct phenotype are then cut into parts and suspect organs and structures are analysed with HREM (high-resolution episcopic microscopy). HREM is an imaging technique that employs positive eosin staining and episcopic imaging for generating three-dimensional (3D) high-resolution (voxel size: 1.07 x 1.07 x 2 microm)
Vistahermosa Reproduction Unit.. Several aspects have to be evaluated so that the strategy to be followed is successful: number of embryos obtained, embryo quality grade, age of the patient, associated pathologies, complementary techniques and if it is an IVF or ovodonation cycle.. But why on day 3 or day 5? Dr. Avilés explains that these are the days in which the quality of the embryos can be more easily analyzed according to morphological parameters: shape, size, number of cells, fragments or vacuoles of the cells; and kinetic parameters: times of cell division. Also, depending on the implantation potential, the selection of the embryos includes 4 grades, from A to D, with A being very high and D being the lowest.. "Transferring on day 3 or on day 5 will depend fundamentally on the number of embryos we have, especially because the fact that an embryo does not reach day 5 in the laboratory does not mean that it does not evolve in the uterus, which is its natural environment, "says ...
Dejelling embryos: Wait at least one hour after fertilisation, any time after this embryos may be dejellied. Decant the MBS off the embryos, leaving them semi-dry and stuck to the bottom of the dish. Cover the embryos in the 2% cysteine solution, which will dissolve the jelly coats surrounding the eggs. With occasional, mild agitation, the embryos will be liberated in 5-7 minutes. It is important not to "swirl" eggs too vigorously when dejellying as this can cause axis duplications in some cases. Once the jelly coat is dissolved, the cysteine solution must be removed immediately (it can be reused). The embryos are then washed 3-4 times in a large volume of 0.1xMBS to remove residual cysteine. If left in the cysteine solution too long, or not washed enough, the plasma membrane will be damaged and the embryos will die! ...

Mouse Embryo Imaging. Dec. 18, 2015Webcast Light Sheet Microscopy: Recording the First Days of a Mouse Embryos Life For the first time, scientists can observe the first two to three days of a mouse
Here we may call attention to certain interesting observations of STERNBERG (1927). He found in the tissue of the connecting stalk of the four-somite embryo already referred to, an epithelial vesicle, quite separated from the allantoic canal (0. his Taf. I, Abb. 1, and Taf. II, Abb. 2) and possessing a canal-like prolongation directed towards the free end of the latter. He regarded this structure as an " Amniongang " (pp. 181-182). Now if we compare the terminal vesicle (fig. 28, Plate 32) of our specimen with the structure in question in STERNBERGs embryo (STERNBERG, 1927, fig. 35, p. 181), there seems to be no essential difference between them, and if we compare figs. 34 and 33 in STERN- BERGs paper with fig. 10, Plate II, in FLoRIANs paper (1930, a), the only obvious difference is in the size of the lumen. We are, therefore, convinced that the " Amnion- gang " in S.TERNBERGs specimen represents the detached vesicular end of the allantoic canal. STERNBERG, it is of interest to note, ...

So, today was it....our transfer day! We had a different doctor perform our transfer Dr Sanfillipo-he was amazing! I was so pleased with his bedside manor. When Dr Sanfillipo came in we got the final result of our embryos-Of the five, three were mature. All three of the mature ones fertilized. Today we had two embryos come in at 6A (6 cells, quality A) and one at a 4B (4 cells, quality B). He said the 6As were perfect (the B was still pretty good)! You cant get anything better than an A. The picture I have showing is what a 6 cell embryo looks like (this one is not mine). We had only planned on implanting 2/3 of the embryos-however, the 4 cell was not able to be frozen. The embryos need to be at least 5 cells. So, instead of discarding the embryo we decided to implant that one as well ...

Im not 100% sure what you mean by "trace them with different shapes". Im going to assume that you mean you want to use a different symbol when one type is detected over the other. There are a couple ways to do this. What I would do is use the center coordinates in one of the display_square or display_point modules to draw a different symbol for each result. This requires a bit more work to create an array for each type (assuming more than one embryo is visible at a time) and feed those arrays into the respective display modules. If only one embryo is visible at a time then just create two variables alive_x, alive_y and dead_x, dead_y which are then used in two display modules. When one is active, set the other set to -1000 so that nothing is displayed. (i.e. if you dont clear dead_x and just set alive_x then the display module will still show the previous result). Hope this makes sense ...

AU - Talebian, Laleh. AU - Lind, Evan. AU - Robin, Catherine. AU - Binder, Michael. AU - Dzierzak, Elaine. AU - Speck, Nancy A.. PY - 2002. Y1 - 2002. N2 - Hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) are first found in the aorta-gonad-mesonephros region and vitelline and umbilical arteries of the midgestation mouse embryo. Runx1 (AML1), the DNA binding subunit of a core binding factor, is required for the emergence and/or subsequent function of HSCs. We show that all HSCs in the embryo express Runx1. Furthermore, HSCs in Runx1+/- embryos are heterogeneous and include CD45+ cells, endothelial cells, and mesenchymal cells. Comparison with wild-type embryos showed that the distribution of HSCs among these various cell populations is sensitive to Runx1 dosage. These data provide the first morphological description of ...
Those Swedish scientists at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm have become the first to successfully edit genetic material in healthy human embryos. The scientists, led by biologist Fredrik Lanner, injected a gene-editing tool into human embryos that was intended to make extremely specific changes to that embryos genetic material. The human embryo injection is done at an extremely early stage, less than 48 hours after fertilization. So what are they changing in the human embryos DNA? That is not entirely clear. For now, the researchers say that they are hoping that the experiments theyre conducting will help them develop new methods for preventing miscarriages and for treating infertility, as well as to better understand human embryo development.. The human embryos used in the Swedish experiments could lead to pregnancy, but for the moment, they will not. The human embryos used were donated by couples that had undergone an in vitro fertilization process. The human embryos all contained an ...
Nodal signals in the early post-implantation stage embryo are essential to establish initial proximal-distal (P-D) polarity and generate the final anterior-posterior (A-P) body axis. Nodal signaling in the epiblast results in the phosphorylation of Smad2 in the overlying visceral endoderm necessary to induce the AVE, in part via Smad2-dependent activation of the T-box gene Eomesodermin. Slightly later following mesoderm induction a continuum of dose-dependent Nodal signaling during the process of gastrulation underlies specification of mesodermal and definitive endoderm progenitors. Dynamic Nodal expression during the critical 72 h time window immediately following implantation, accomplished by a series of feed-back and feed-forward mechanisms serves to provide key positional cues required for establishment of the body plan and controls cell fate decisions in the early mammalian embryo.

As embryologists, one of the most common questions that we get from patients is "What do the grades of my embryos tell us about my chances of becoming pregnant?" The answer to this question is not a simple one. The objective of this article is to explain how we grade embryos and what those grades mean as far as an embryos potential for development.. All embryo grading systems are subjective. While we can make educated guesses about an embryos potential based on the experience of many embryologists grading millions of embryos, there are many cases of embryos with poor grades that make pregnancies and perfect embryos that do not. Also, no matter the grading system, the embryo grades do not tell us what is going on inside the embryo genetically.. We use grading systems to help us determine which embryos to transfer and/or freeze. At the Texas Fertility Center, embryo transfers occur either 3 days or 5 days after a retrieval. Because embryos are developmentally different on these days, we have ...

Hi, I need some help from experts about primary cell culture. Im studying the transforming potentials of viral genes using rat embryo fibroblasts (REF), but I have some problems. First, I have transfected E1A- and Ha-ras-expressing plasmids to one million REF cells isolated from 14-day-old embryo as a control, and obtained about 80 foci per 100mm dish. But next time I did the same control experiment with REF from differnt rat, and no foci at all! Is there some variations between different rats of same species? I used Sprague-Dawley rats. Second, should I use supercoil plasmids or linearized ones? Till now I used supercoils. In many reference papers, there is no comment about the state of plasmids. If you know about these questions, please answer me. I would appreciate very much.   This is written by Chang Jun (Jeje).   E-mail : Jeje at sws1.postech.ac.kr   Pohang Univ.

What are the main issues articulated in the Egli paper that raise at least some doubts about the main conclusions of Ma, et al. paper?. First, the Ma paper makes the unusual argument that HDR-driven gene editing occurred after CRISPR-Cas9-induced DNA breaks in the mutant paternal allele essentially exclusively using the normal maternal chromosome as a template within the same 1-cell embryo rather than via an introduced synthetic template. In fact, in some of the Ma papers studies no template was included so that CRISPR-Cas9 gene editing had to rely on endogenous DNA in the embryo for HDR. However, Egli, et al. point out that this is exceedingly unlikely because the male and female pronuclei are entirely physically separated in the 1-cell embryo (Figure 1e-f above). How could the maternal and paternal chromosomes have physically come together to mediate this HDR during meiosis? Hypothetically possible? I suppose, but its hard to imagine a likely mechanism.. What about HDR later during mitosis? ...
According to MIT Technology Review, the experiment was just an exercise in science - the embryos were not allowed to develop for more than a few days and were never meant to be implanted into a womb. In the new work, Technology Review reported, Mitalipov and his colleagues created human embryos using sperm donated by men with the genetic mutation that they planned to try to fix with CRISPR. But they only managed to make their desired DNA changes on a small number of cells, creating an effect known as "mosaicism". It involves using molecular "scissors" to remove undesirable elements of gene sequencing and replace them with new DNA elements. The teams results are still pending publication, so well likely hear more details about the study in the future..
