Where does the lens and nasal placodes form? The frontonasal process
What is associated with the frontonasal process? Intermaxillary segment which forms the primary palate, the philtrum of the lip and the 4 incisor teeth

What forms the seminiferous tubules? The medullary region of the gonadal cord
What do spermatogonia and oogonia cells come from? Primordial germ cells
Where do the Sertoli cells come from? Mesonephric tubules epithelial cells
Where do the intersitial cells come from? Mesodermal mesenchyme cells @ the gonadal ridge
What happens when ovaries form? Gonadal cords degenerate; and cortical cords form
What is special about the mare ovary? Follicles are located throughout the ovary - instead of just around the perphery.
What does the Paramesonephic duct form? uterine tube horns, body & cervix of the uterus and the proximal vagina
Define Uterus masculinus It is a remnant of the paramesonephric ducts in the male. It looks like a very small uterus with horns and a body (especially seen in Stallions)
What are the 4 major criteria for gender determination? 1 - Genetic (chromosomal) composition, 2- Gonadal histology, 3 - Morphology of the reproductive tract, 4 - Morphology/appearance of the external genitalia
Define hermaphrodite. An animal in which one or more of the 4 sex criteria don't match the others.
Define true hermaphrodite. Has gonadal tissues of both sexes
Define false or pseudohermaphrodite Has gonads of one sex only and alteration of one or more other sexual characteristics.
Define teratogen. 4 Something that comprimises the normal development of the fetus or embryo.
Define teratology. Study of the advers effects of the environment on developing system
Define congenital. present at birth.
Describe the effect of Thalidomide. babies with flippers.
What are the 4 lessons of embryology? 1 - This is a self cleansing system. 2 - Not all congenital defects are malformations, 3 - congenital defects are often multifactorial in etiology, 4- An educated guess is better than no guess at all :)
Describe the post conception embryonic loss numbers at 2 weeks. 31% lost within two weeks. (Chromosome and implantation defects)
Describe the post conception embryonic loss numbers at 3 weeks. 27% lost - Infection in dam or endocrinology issues.
Describe the post conception embryonic loss at 8 weeks. 10% loss - Severe malformations
Describe the loss potential of liveborn animals. 7% loss - functional defects
Odds of a liveborn animal with a congential defect. Out of 24 normal births 1 will have a congenital malformation.
Define malformation. An intrinsic problem in embryologic differentiation or development of a structure causing it to be abnormally formed.
Define deformation. An alteration in the shape/structural integrity of a limb or an organ which had previously differentiated and developed normally.
Define a disruption. A structural defect resulting from the distruction of a previously formed normal structure.
What happens to a pre-implanted embryo when it is damaged? Usually death.
What happens to an embryo if it is damaged during organogenesis? Organ and system susceptible to malformations
What happens to a fetus is damaged? Growth retardation, structual defects or functional loss.
Pricipals of teratology 1 - susceptibility depends on genetics. 2 - stage influences susceptibility. 3 - Teratogenics act through specific mechanisms. 4 - Endpoints are different 5 - outcomes depends on the compound. 6 - Dose dependant.
What are the endpoints of abnormal development? Death, malformation, deformation, disruption, growth retardation, functional disorder

What creates the sensory horn? Alar plate
What creates the motor horn? Basal plate
Define Hydrocephalus. Accumulation of an excessive amount of CSF
Define Obstructive hydrocephalus Excessive CSF that causes increased pressure.
Define Compensatory hydrocephalus When brain tissue fails to form or if brain tissue is destroyed and CSF fills the space = no increased pressure
Define hypoplasia/atrophy viruses that infect the cerebellum and destroys them (in cats - Feline panleukopenia virus; in cows - bovine virus diarrhea virus)
What does the eye develop from? The optic vesicle & optic stalk from the diencephalon
Explain eye development. Optic vesicle forms, a thickening called the lens placode, then the vesicle becomes the optic cup, The lens pit then forms then the lens vesicle
What layer is the lens vesicle made from? Surface ectoderm
What makes up the cornea? Ectoderm, neural crest cells, sometimes mesenchyme
What forms the optic nerve? The optic stalk
Define anophtalmia No eye formed

What forms the inner ear? The otic placode
What forms the auditory tube and tympanic cavity? The first pharyngeal pouch
Where is the respiratory diverticulum formed? (also called tracheobronchial) It forms from a ventral groove called the laryngotracheal groove - in ruminants a 3rd bud forms the tracheal bronchus
What is formed by a lung bud? 2 Primary bonchial buds and tracheal bronchus in rumies - a secondary bronchials for the lobar bronchi - then the segmental bronchi
What gives rise to respiratory epithelium? Endoderm
What makes all the lung tissue - except epithelium? Mesenchyme from mesoderm of splanchnopleure
