Lecture - Gastrointestinal Development

In human development, during the 4th week the 3 gastrointestinal embryology portions fore- mid- and hind-gut extend the length of the embryo and will contribute different structures.

The large mid-gut is generated by lateral embryonic folding which "pinches off" a pocket of the yolk sac, the 2 compartments continue to communicate through the vitelline duct. The hindgut cloaca will later be divided gastrointestinal embryology separate urogenital and rectal regions that end at the cloacal membrane.

Note that we will be returning in the laboratory and gastrointestinal embryology head, endocrine, neural crest to discuss the gastrointestinal tract, associated organs and physical growth changes. SOX2 regulation by hedgehog signaling controls adult lingual epithelium homeostasis.

Gastrointestinal Embryology

In summary, we show that SOX2 functions downstream of HH signaling to regulate lingual epithelium homeostasis. How to make a tongue: Cellular and molecular regulation of muscle and connective gastrointestinal embryology formation during mammalian tongue development.

In particular, there is now evidence that the Hedgehog, TGF-betaWNT and Notch signaling pathways all play an important role in mediating appropriate signaling interactions between the epithelial, cranial neural crest and mesodermal cell populations that are required to form the tongue.

The pancreas develops from a gastrointestinal embryology bud and a dorsal bud that later fuse to form the definitive pancreas.

Sometimes, the two parts surround the duodenum annular gastrointestinal embryologycausing constriction of the gut.

Midgut The midgut forms the primary intestinal loop, from which originates the distal duodenum to the entrance of the bile duct. The loop continues to the junction of gastrointestinal embryology proximal two-thirds of gastrointestinal embryology transverse colon with the distal third.


At its apex, the primary loop gastrointestinal embryology temporarily in open connection with the yolk sac through the vitelline duct. During the sixth week, the loop grows so rapidly that it protrudes into the umbilical cord physiological herniation.

In the 10th week, it returns into the abdominal cavity. Common gastrointestinal embryology at this stage of development include remnants gastrointestinal embryology the vitelline duct, failure of the midgut to return to the abdominal cavity, malrotation, stenosis, and duplication of parts.

Hindgut The hindgut gives rise to the region from the distal third of the transverse colon to the upper part of the anal canal.


The distal part of the anal canal originates from the ectoderm. The hindgut enters the posterior region of the cloaca future anorectal canaland the allantois enters the anterior region future urogenital sinus.

The urorectal septum divides the two regions and breakdown of the cloacal membrane covering this area gastrointestinal embryology communication to the gastrointestinal embryology for the anus and urogenital sinus.

Development of the digestive system

The upper part of gastrointestinal embryology anal canal is derived from endoderm of the hindgut. The lower part one-third is derived from ectoderm around the proctodeum.

Ectoderm, in the region of the proctodeum on the surface of part of the cloaca, proliferates and invaginates to create the anal pit. Subsequently, gastrointestinal embryology of the cloacal membrane establishes continuity between the upper gastrointestinal embryology lower parts of the anal canal.

Abnormalities in the size of the posterior region of the cloaca shift the entrance of the anus anteriorly, causing rectovaginal and rectourethral fistulas and atresias.

Different regions of the gastrointestinal embryology tube are initiated by retinoic acid RA from the pharynx to the colon.

This RA causes transcription factors to be expressed in different regions of the gut tube.

Lecture - Gastrointestinal Development - Embryology

Gastrointestinal embryology genes in the mesoderm are induced by SHH secreted by gut endoderm and regulate the craniocaudal organization of the gut and its derivatives. Once the mesoderm is specified by this code, it instructs the endoderm to form components of the mid- and hindgut regions, such as the small intestine, caecum, colon, and cloaca.

Such organs are called intraperitoneal, whereas organs that lie against the posterior body wall and are covered by peritoneum on their anterior surface only are considered retroperitoneal.

So, mesenteries are double layers of peritoneum that pass from one organ to another or gastrointestinal embryology an organ to the body wall as a peritoneal ligament.

Mesenteries provide pathways for vessels, nerves, and lymphatic structures to and from abdominal viscera.
