The role of the gastrointestinal epithelium as a possible pathway for the transfer of nutrients to the embryo's circulation.

Abstract

The endodermal cells of the human yolk sac (YS) produce non-nucleated erythrocytes (NNEs) and numerous serum proteins that are transiently storage within the YS cavity. After their transfer via the vitelline duct to the embryo gastrointestinal lumen, the nutrients' final fate is unknown. With the aim of investigate how erythroid cells and nutrients are… (More)
