20-26) The high resistance at blastula stage to physico chemical stress, enhanced in free living embryos by protective barriers like the vitelline membrane and jelly coats, provide support for the argument that its reflects very aggressive environmental conditions during the evolution of early multicellular organisms.
82) In accordance with the method, a piece of vector plasmid DNA was injected into either a fertilized mouse oocyte or one of the cells of an early embryonic stage, preferably prior to the eight-cell blastula stage.
In the frog Xenopus, embryonic genes first become active when the embryo is a blastula (a hollow sphere with a single layer of cells) about eight hours after fertilization.
