Temporal hemopoietic organs in the quail embryo are the yolk sac, heart, mesonephros, metanephros, liver, pancreas, small intestine and its mesentrey. In some organs either only erythroid cells (the heart, small intestine and its mesentery), or only granulocytes (the pancreas) are formed. In other temporal organs cell differentiation of both erythrocytic and granulocytic series takes place; as a rule, the erythrocytic series predominate. Maximum of erythro- and granulocytopoiesis in all the temporal hemopoietic organs occur on the 9th--11th incubation days. By the end of the second week of incubation the hemopoietic activity either essentially decreases or stops. The definitive hemopoietic organs are the bone marrow, spleen and organs of the lymphoid system--the thymus and the bursa Fabricii. Differentiation of erythrocytes is especially active in the spleen; granulocytes are predominantly formed in the bone marrow. In the thymus and bursa Fabricii the phase of temporal granulocytohemopoietic activity precedes lymphocytopoiesis. A complete change of erythrocytic population takes 5--6 days of incubation. The definite erythrocytes, even before they appear in blood islets of the yolk sac, are identified in the cardiac hemopoietic ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.
