Cell differentiation in the preimplantation human

  title={Cell differentiation in the preimplantation human},
  author={Christoph Hansis and Robert Geoffrey Edwards},
This brief paper analyses current knowledge on gene expression in individual blastomeres of preimplantation mammalian embryos. Initially, current knowledge on axes and cleavage planes in mammalian eggs and embryo blastomeres is described, together with gene and system homologies with flies and nematodes, and their influence on differentiation. Stress is placed on the need to study individual blastomeres, and even specific components within blastomeres. Examples of published work concentrate on… CONTINUE READING
