This article reviews the current state of knowledge concerning morphological and physiological mechanisms important to growth and differentiation of the mammalian blastocyst between compaction and implantation. Morphological processes occur in conjunction with major changes in transport systems that control the movement of substances into and out of the embryo. Compaction is a morphological development that is associated with the formation of an outer squamous epithelium, the trophectoderm… CONTINUE READING
