Biology 30
Unit 2: Reproduction
Gastrulation & Extra-embryonic Membrance Formation
Extra Embryonic Membranes
After implantation the ____________________ layer begins to thicken and
divides into 2 separate layers
Amnion Layer –
 forms a sac __________________________;
 cells of amnion secrete _______________ ____________ in which fetus will
be suspended;
 amniotic fluid acts as a "__________________________" for fetus,
___________________ it against injury
Chorion Layer  "interface" with _________________________ of uterus;
 allows for exchange of ______________ (to the embryo) and ___________
______________ (from the embryo) with the mother's circulatory system;
 forms _________________ later on in pregnancy;
 produces ________ (human chorionic gonadotropic hormone) which
maintains the corpus luteum for the ______________________________ of
pregnancy (after that placenta takes over) – maintains estrogen and
progesterone levels to maintain endometrium. (this is the hormone that
pregnancy tests detect)
Biology 30
Unit 2: Reproduction
Allantois –
 small sac that ________________________________ in the form of cast-off
cells from the embryo;
 temporary storage site for these materials that later becomes part of the
Yolk Sac –
 cells of the yolk sac produce high-calorie, nutritious yolk that supplies
embryo before the connection to the _______________ is complete
 site of early __________________________ (RBC) formation
 later contributes to primitive __________________ tract
Cells from the endometrium & embryo combine to form the PLACENTA
 will produce __________________ through the last 7 months of pregnancy
 richly supplied with blood vessels. __________________________ensure
that a large number of blood vessels of the fetus are exposed to maternal
 The _________________ provides umbilical blood vessels in the placenta
 Interface for exchange between _______________ and ______________
o From mother to fetus – _____________________________________
o From fetus to mother ______________________________________
 The umbilical cord connects the embryo with the placenta
Biology 30
Blastocyst → Gastrula (day 7-10)
Unit 2: Reproduction
-- process is called ______________________
 changes happening to inner cell layer (________________)
 inner cell layer forms ______________ separate layers
 as the embryonic disc folds into two directions the endoderm pushes out
through an opening. The part of the endoderm that emerges =
__________________(forms the umbilical cord)
 diagram:
 ectoderm – skin, hair, fingernails, teeth, NS, brain , eye, semicircular canals,
o ________________________________________________________
 mesoderm – muscles, blood vessels, connective tissue, kidney, reproductive
o ________________________________________________________
 endoderm – digestive, respiratory, bladder, liver, pancrease, thyroid,
o ________________________________________________________
