Fig. 26a. Mouse E13.5 Heart Aortic Root
The images are from the same mouse heart at E13.5.
The left hand panel, in the long axis, shows how the aortic root has become reorientated so as to be supported above the cavity of the left ventricle, although the interventricular communication remains patent. The superior and inferior atrioventricular (AV) cushions have now fused, and will eventually become the aortic, or anterior, leaflet of the mitral valve, which eventually achieves fibrous continuity with the developing leaflets of the aortic valve. At the stage shown in the left hand panel, however, the muscular inner heart curvature still interposes between the leaflets of the developing aortic and mitral valves.
This is also well seen in the right hand panel, taken in short axis. The white dotted line shows the line of fusion between the left ventricular components of the superior and inferior atrioventricular cushions, with the white star showing the inner heart curvature. Note that, at this stage, the fused major cushions guard the larger part of the developing mitral valvar orifice, with the left lateral cushion being relatively small.
