• fetus
  • Fetal height, Fetal Weight and head circumference(HC),Crown to Rump length(CR), dermatological observations like skin thickness etc. are measured individually to assess the growth and development of the organs and the fetus as a whole and can be a parameter for normal or abnormal development also including adaptation of the fetus to its newer environment. (wikipedia.org)
  • Growth of the individual organs is controlled by the genetic potential, the environment provided by the mother and by the fetus itself. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is known as maternal-fetal tolerance where B cells expressing receptors specific for a particular antigen enter the circulation of the developing fetus via the placenta. (wikipedia.org)
  • liver
  • Some examples include SCID-hu Thy/Liv mice, which are given human fetal thymus and liver cells, hu-SRC-SCID mice, which are implanted with human hematopoietic stem cells (HSC), and hu-PBL-SCID mice, in which human peripheral blood mononuclear cells have been injected. (wikipedia.org)
  • At 8-12 weeks of gestation, liver is a relatively bigger organ which forms 4-5-5.5% of the total body weight and protrudes through the abdominal wall. (wikipedia.org)
  • develops
  • In order to gain a better understanding of the cellular interactions that result in the formation of latent metastasis and decreased survival, we have generated an inducible transgenic mouse model of YFP-expressing ductal carcinoma that develops after sexual maturity in immune-competent mice and is driven by consistent, endocrine-independent oncogene expression.

  • The nervous system develops very rapidly during the fetal period. (publishyourarticles.net)
  • In redlip blennies, only the male fish develops an organ at the anal-urogenital region that produces antimicrobial substances. (wikipedia.org)
  • mice
  • Mice with SCIDs have lymphocyte progenitors, but these cells are unable to survive to maturity. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some SCID mice are shown to reject skin grafts, so it has been proposed that this disease arises from a leaky mutation, meaning that some mice with SCIDs do in fact have a somewhat functional adaptive immune system. (wikipedia.org)
  • adaptive
  • The dynamic interactions between the severity, overall duration, and repetitive frequency of IH and the level of maturity of the organs and systems at the time of IH will modify the ventilatory, metabolic, and cardiovascular responses to hypoxia and the adaptive (beneficial) or maladaptive (detrimental) consequences after exposure to IH. (frontiersin.org)
  • structural
  • In this review article, we primarily focus on providing an impartial overview on the currently available evidence regarding the functional and structural impact of IH in healthy children or pediatric patients. (frontiersin.org)
  • blood vessels
  • The heart is a muscular organ in most animals, which pumps blood through the blood vessels of the circulatory system. (wikipedia.org)
  • Trabecular marrow is composed of a network of rod- and plate-like elements that make the overall organ lighter and allow room for blood vessels and marrow. (wikipedia.org)
  • bones
  • Bones support and protect the various organs of the body, produce red and white blood cells, store minerals, provide structure and support for the body, and enable mobility. (wikipedia.org)
  • organism
  • The growth of an organ from inception to a definitive functional stage is dependent on the integrated function of the whole organism which depends on a number of parameters such as the nucleic acid content of the cells which is one of the most important factors. (wikipedia.org)
  • movement
  • The malformations of arthrogryposis can be secondary to environmental factors such as: decreased intrauterine movement, oligohydramnios (low volume or abnormal distribution of intrauterine fluid), and defects in the fetal blood supply. (wikipedia.org)
  • This leads to joint fixation and reduced fetal movement. (wikipedia.org)
  • Also muscle abnormalities could lead to a reduction of fetal movement. (wikipedia.org)
  • OBJECTIVE: Whether fetal breathing movements or gasping result in the movement of amniotic fluid substances into the distal airways remains controversial. (biomedsearch.com)
  • citation needed] It facilitates bone's main functions: to support the whole body, protect organs, provide levers for movement, and store and release chemical elements, mainly calcium. (wikipedia.org)
  • heart
  • In the present work, we aim at focusing on the protocols for differentiation of hPSCs into functional cardiomyocytes in vitro as well as achievements in the heart disease modelling and drug testing on the patient-specific iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes (iPSC-CMs). (hindawi.com)
  • birth
  • Muscles, being to be formed even before the nerves and sensory organs almost all the sensory parts develop in the being before the delivery or actual birth. (publishyourarticles.net)
