Black Box Of Embryo Development

[ Watch the Video: Cells Organize Into Rosette-Like Arrangement ] April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Scientists have uncovered much about how embryos develop, but implantation — a key step in the process — has remained a mystery. A new study from Cambridge University, published in the journal Cell, has discovered a way to study this "black box" of development. Mammalian embryos develop in two phases: pre-implantation — where the embryo is a small, free...

The penetration of sperm into an egg is critical for pregnancy, but the implantation of the developing blastocyst into the endometrium – the lining of the uterus – is an equally important step that requires the input of the master molecule steroid receptor coactivator-2 (SRC-2), said researchers from Baylor College of Medicine in a report that appears online in the open access journal PLoS Genetics. “Understanding how SRC-2 reprograms the endometrium to be receptive to implantation...

Cigarette smoke reduces the production of a Fallopian tube gene known as "BAD", which helps explain the link between smoking and ectopic pregnancy. The finding, from scientists led by Drs Andrew Horne and Colin Duncan at the Medical Research Council (MRC) Centre for Reproductive Health in Edinburgh, UK, was described today at the annual meting of ESHRE (European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology) in Istanbul. Ectopic pregnancy - when the embryo implants outside the uterus and in...

Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have discovered a molecule that inhibits the action of estrogen. This female hormone plays a key role in the growth, maintenance and repair of reproductive tissues and fuels the development of endometrial and breast cancers. The molecule, discovered in animal studies, could lead to new therapies for preventing and treating estrogen-related diseases in humans. The findings were published online April 26 in the PNAS Plus....

Maternal-fetal interactions explored in topical issue of Advances in Neuroimmune Biology Fertility problems, recurrent miscarriages, and pregnancy complications can occur when maternal immunological tolerance of the fetus is impaired. Gérard Chaouat and colleagues from Inserm et Assistance Publique et Université Paris Sud Orsay, Hopital Antoine Bèclère, Clamart Cedex, France (now in Hopital Saint Louis, Paris), trace the evolution of the...

NIH funded study has implications for understanding disorders of the uterus Researchers funded by the National Institutes of Health have identified a key step in the establishment of a pregnancy. Their discovery shows how the hormone progesterone suppresses the growth of the uterus's lining so that a fertilized egg can implant in the uterus. This key step, the researchers discovered, occurs when a protein called Hand2 suppresses the chemical activity that stimulates growth of the uterine...

The mammalian embryo relies on physical connections to its mother to survive. After implantation into the wall of the uterus and before the placenta is established, a structure known as the decidua forms and is key to supporting embryonic development. Defective formation of an effective decidua is thought to be a cause of female infertility. A team of researchers, led by Toru Miyazaki, at the University of Tokyo, Japan, has now determined that the protein DEDD is required for the formation of...
