Theoretical exploration of blastocyst morphogenesis.

Abstract:

A theoretical exploration of cell distribution on the mouse blastocyst is conducted. A model ball of cells represents the morula which develops into a 32-cell model blastocyst that is enclosed in a spherical surface with a hemispherical cavity at one end. In the combinatorial analysis it is assumed that each cell of the 2-cell embryo forms 16 cells in the blastocyst and that these 16 cells touch each other. The results of the analysis identify a tendency for one set of 16 cells to contribute ...
