  • Neural Stem Cells
    anatomy Self-renewing cells that generate the main phenotypes of the nervous system in both the embryo and adult. Neural stem cells are precursors to ...
  • Neural Tube
    anatomy A tube of ectodermal tissue in an embryo that will give rise to the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM, including the SPINAL CORD and the BRAIN. Lumen ...
  • Neurites
    anatomy In tissue culture, hairlike projections of neurons stimulated by growth factors and other molecules. These projections may go on to form a branched tree of ...
  • NIH 3T3 Cells
    anatomy A continuous cell line of high contact-inhibition established from NIH Swiss mouse embryo cultures. The cells are useful for DNA transfection ...
  • Notochord
    anatomy A cartilaginous rod of mesodermal cells at the dorsal midline of all CHORDATE embryos. In lower vertebrates, notochord is the backbone of ...
  • Organizers, Embryonic
    anatomy Cells in certain regions of an embryo that self-regulate embryonic development. These organizers have been found in dorsal and...
  • Primitive Streak
    anatomy A linear band of rapidly proliferating cells that begins near the posterior end of an embryo and grows cranially. Primitive streak is formed ...
  • Pronephros
    anatomy The primordial kidney that develops from the INTERMEDIATE MESODERM in the embryos of vertebrates, and is succeeded by the MESONEPHROS. In ...
  • Prosencephalon
    anatomy The anterior of the three primitive cerebral vesicles of the embryonic brain arising from the NEURAL TUBE. It subdivides to form DIENCEPHALON ...
  • Rhombencephalon
    anatomy The posterior of the three primitive cerebral vesicles of an embryonic brain. It consists of myelencephalon, metencephalon, and isthmus ...
  • Swiss 3T3 Cells
    anatomy A cell line established in 1962 from disaggregated Swiss albino mouse embryos. This fibroblast cell line is extremely popular in research.
  • Telencephalon
    anatomy The anterior subdivision of the embryonic forebrain (prosencephalon) or the corresponding part of the adult forebrain that includes the ...
  • Totipotent Stem Cells
    anatomy Single cells that have the potential to form an entire organism. They have the capacity to specialize into extraembryonic membranes and ...
  • Urachus
    anatomy An embryonic structure originating from the ALLANTOIS. It is a canal connecting the fetal URINARY BLADDER and the UMBILICUS. It is normally ...
  • Uterus
    anatomy The hollow thick-walled muscular organ in the female PELVIS. It consists of the fundus (the body) which is the site of EMBRYO IMPLANTATION and ...
