Absent ductus venosus atrial systole (a-wave), umbilical vein pulsations, loss of movement, and oligohydramnios were the strongest predictors of stillbirth and acidemia.
Thus, although the mammalian embryo has vessels analogous to the vitelline veins, the main supply of food and oxygen comes from the umbilical vein, which unites the embryo with the placenta.
This study developed a quantitative, highly accurate and precise method to simultaneously monitor the expression of several tumor marker genes in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) in response to TSP1 and NO.
