Introduction

Stage11 bf2c.jpg Stage11 sem6.jpg

This early week 4 embryonic stage shows key features of heart tube and neural plate to tube development.

The embryo is still transparent enough to view the underlying somite and transverse septum development.

The embryo is still quite small and is comparable in size to the external yolk sac.


There are a number of different images and resources available for this embryonic stage including:

Lateral (right) view of embryo

Facts

Week 4, 23 - 26 days, 2.5 - 4.5 mm, Somite Number 13 - 20

Events

Ectoderm: Neural tube continues to close, Rostral neuropore closes

Mesoderm: continued segmentation of paraxial mesoderm (13 - 20 somite pairs), heart tube bending


Features

rostral neuropore closing, forebrain, neural tube in region of developing spinal cord, somites, caudal neuropore, connecting stalk, amnion

Identify: heart, rostral (cranial, anterior) neuropore closing, forebrain, neural tube in region of developing spinal cord, somites, caudal neuropore, connecting stalk, amnion

Scanning EM

This is a scanning EM of the embryo dorsal view showing the neural tube closing with open neuropores and the paired somites visible through the thin ectoderm. Features: surface ectoderm, neural tube, cranial (anterior) neuropore, caudal (posterior) neuropore, somites, heart, cut edge of amnion, 24 days, 13 somite pairs
This is a scanning EM of the embryo fractured close to the midline to show the hindbrain rhombomeres. Features: surface ectoderm, neural tube, hindbrain rhombomeres, forebrain, buccopharyngeal membrane, yolk sac, 25 days, 19 somite pairs
This is a scanning EM of the embryo superior dorsal view showing the paired otic placodes sinking into the surface at the level of the hindbrain. Features: surface ectoderm, paired otic placodes, pharyngeal arches heart, 25 days, 19 somite pairs
This is a scanning EM of the embryo dorsolateral view showing the neural tube closing with open neuropores and the paired somites visible through the thin ectoderm. Features: surface ectoderm, neural tube, cranial (anterior) neuropore, caudal (posterior) neuropore, somites, heart, cut edge of amnion, 24 days, 13 somite pairs
This is a scanning EM of the embryo fractured to show the neural tube, notochord and somites. Features: surface ectoderm, neural tube, notochord, somites, somitocoels, dorsal aortas, gastrointestinal tract, 25 days, 19 somite pairs
This is a labeled version of the scanning EM of the fractured embryo
