  Plant embryogenesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Plant embryogenesis is a sexual or asexual reproductive process that forms new plants.
The process of embryogenesis may occur naturally in the plant as a result of sexual fertilization or asexual processes, these embryos are called zygotic embryos and develop into seeds, which germinate giving rise to seedlings.
In the subsequent torpedo and cotyledonary stages of embryogenesis, the embryo completes its growth by elongating and enlarging.

 Embryogenesis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Embryogenesis is a developmental process that usually begins once the egg has been fertilized.
In general, the rate of embryonic development depends on temperature (insects are poikilothermic) and on species-specific characteristics of development.
  Embryogenesis ends when the yolk's contents have been consumed:   the immature insect is fully formed and ready to hatch from the egg.

 Embryogenesis - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Embryogenesis is the process by which the embryo is formed and develops.
Other common organs or structures which arise at this time include the heart and somites, but from now on embryogenesis follows no common pattern among the different taxa of the animal kingdom.
In most animals organogenesis along with morphogenesis will result in a larva.

 Appendix A: Early Development [Stem Cell Information]
Thus, the regulation of PG cell fate in the mammalian embryo is a result of the local environment of the cells, a recurring theme in mammalian embryogenesis, and the expression of genes in the PG cells [37].
It encodes fibroblast growth factor-4 (FGF-4), a growth factor protein that is expressed together with Oct-4 in the inner cell mass and epiblast [32].
It is a general characteristic of undifferentiated cells—including embryonic cells in vivo or in vitro—that when they stop dividing, they differentiate, become quiescent or senescent (stop their progress through the cell cycle and enter a period of temporary or permanent "rest"), or die.

The embryogenesis of the annual killifishes starts only after the blastogenesis or the diapause DI have been completed.
The embryogenesis in the non-annual killifishes proceeds simultaneously with the second subphase of the blastogenesis - the formation of gastrula.
Consequently, the embryogenesis and blastogenesis of the non-annual killifishes are united in time and space.

Somatic embryogenesis in immature embryos and protoplasts of Pinus caribaea.
Progress in somatic embryogenesis can in part be evaluated by the level of success in three important steps of the process: (1) initiation of embryogenic cultures, (2) production of fully developed somatic embryos, and (3) establishment of somatic embryo plants under field conditions.
Although other somatic embryogenesis regeneration protocols for conifers have been published, none of these methods have proven totally effective with the Pinus species in that none enabled the practitioner to reliably proceed from the beginning step of explant collection to completion of the regeneration process resulting in establishment of plants in field conditions.

Somatic embryogenesis refers to the initiation of embryos from previously differentiated somatic cells.
As a result, somatic embryogenesis techniques have contributed a great deal of information on the genetic, morphological and physiological changes which take place during zygotic embryo formation in vivo and during early development.
In addition to a model system for understanding embryo development, somatic embryos may be used as a convenient way to propagate large numbers of genetically identical individuals without many of the manipulations necessary to induce root and shoot formation.

 Title of Invention: Method and media for the somati c embryogenesis and regeneration of bamboo
Somatic embryogenesis is now recognized as an acceptable method for plant propagation in vitro because it enables the rapid production of a large number of uniform plants within a relatively short period of time (Rao, et al., supra).
The present invention also provides a medium capable of inducing somatic embryogenesis of an explant from a callus or plantlet obtained through organogenesis of a vegetative explant of a bamboo plant, whereby the number of embryos obtained is vastly multiplied.
It is this specific combination of auxins, BA and sugar in the nutrient medium which induces embryogenesis from the organogenic callus explants, giving rise to multiple embryos from a single explant.

 Sloan-Kettering - Projects: Genes that Control Mouse Embryogenesis   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-21)
Because many of the genes that control mammalian development have not been identified, we are using a genetic approach to identify genes that control important events in the early mouse embryogenesis.
We are particularly interested in 2 classes of mutations: those that alter cell type specification in the nervous system and those that affect early morphogenesis and mesoderm patterning.
This project is a component of the Sloan-Kettering Mouse Project: a collaboration with the laboratories of Lee Niswander and Elizabeth Lacy to screen for mutants that affect 3 stages of mouse embryogenesis.

 untitled
Somatic embryogenesis has been described for more than a hundred plant species (Terzi and Loschiavo, 1990), but the number of reports of somatic embryogenesis among members of the Asteraceae family is still low (May and Trigiano, 1990).
To investigate the influence of growth regulators on the induction of somatic embryogenesis, in vitro leaves of Stevia rebaudiana (2 cm) obtained as described were inoculated on basal medium containing 10 or 25 mM 2,4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid (2,4-D) and 1 or 5 mM 6-Benzylaminopurine (BA) under a high concentration of sucrose (120 g/L).
The influence of high levels of sucrose on the induction of somatic embryogenesis may be due to increased osmotic potential of the media.
