Programmed cell death (PCD) is a widespread phenomenon in the development of vertebrates. In most cases, dying cells during development exhibit generalized morphological features typical of apoptosis. We analyzed the morphological features of dying cells in the developing axial structures of 5 human embryos between 5 and 8 weeks of postovulatory age. Cell death in the axial structures, i.e. spinal cord, notochord and surrounding mesenchyme and somites, was analyzed using light and electron… CONTINUE READING
