Fig. 8b. Mouse E10.5 Developing Heart

The cut in Panel B also shows that the outflow tract (outlet) from a mouse at E10.5 is supported exclusively by the developing right ventricle (RV). Note that the muscular ventricular septum is developing between the ballooning apical components of the two ventricles. So as to reach the outflow tract, all the atrial blood must pass through the embryonic interventricular foramen, which is bounded cranially by the inner heart curvature, and caudally by the muscular ventricular septum.

Panel B is taken from another mouse embryo at E10.5. As had been shown in panel A, the atrioventricular canal (inlet) opens exclusively to the developing left ventricle (LV).

The cut shown in Panel A, prepared from a mouse at E10.5, is taken through the atrioventricular canal, which opens exclusively to the apical part of the left ventricle, which is ballooning from the inlet part of the ventricular loop (long white arrow). The venous tributaries now open to the right side of the initially common atrium. The primary atrial septum can now be seen growing downwards from the atrial roof. The bracket shows the right side of the atrioventricular junction. There is no direct access from the right atrium to the developing right ventricle. Blood entering the right atrium must pass through the atrioventricular canal, and the interventricular foramen (double headed white arrow) so as to enter the cavity of the developing right ventricle.
