Species-Specific Variation Among Mammals


Renee A. Reijo Pera, L. Prezzoto


Current Topics in Developmental Biology


Reproduction across mammalian species is conserved with a general pattern of fertilization followed by nascent embryo development in transcriptional silence for a variable length of time, a series of cleavage divisions that occur without growth in size of the embryo, compaction to form a morula, and production of a blastocyst. Following blastocyst formation, the embryo may implant immediately or after substantial differentiation of the epiblast and hypoblast layers. In this chapter, the shared and unique properties of several species, commonly used in studies of reproduction and embryology, are outlined.



How is this information collected?

This collection of Montana State authored publications is collected by the Library to highlight the achievements of Montana State researchers and more fully understand the research output of the University. They use a number of resources to pull together as complete a list as possible and understand that there may be publications that are missed. If you note the omission of a current publication or want to know more about the collection and display of this information email Leila Sterman.
