In early fetal development, the ventral cloaca (the precursor of the fetal bladder) is connected to the allantois via the urachus.
In the normal embryologic development of the urogenital system, the cranial part of the urogenital sinus is continuous with the allantois, developing into the bladder and pelvic urethra; the bladder dome, posterior walls and part of lateral walls, normally arise from surrounding urogenital sinus mesenchyme.
Key words or phrases include chorion, allantois, yolk sac, amnion, placenta, and umbilical cord.
Derived from the fetal allantois, it provides a rich source of multipotent stem cells, including [CD34.
The allantois is an endermal diverticulum that communicates with the cloaca (hind-gut).
Differences in sialic acid-galactose linkages in the chicken egg amnion and allantois influence human influenza virus receptor specificity and variant selection.

The intra-embryonic cloaca, destined to become the bladder, is connected to the extra-embryonic allantois derived from the caudal end of the yolk sac through the urachus.
Underdeveloped trophoblast, precocious regression of the yolk sac and/or a failure of the allantois and vasculature to develop may delay attachment and placentation and, if threshold for survival is not attained, such events will likely be lethal.
The chorioallantoic membrane develops from two extraembryonic structures: the chorion and allantois.
The placentas of eutherian mammals consist of two extra-embryonic membranes; that is, the allantois and the chorion.
Stage 1 ends when the allantois, or fetal membranes, are pushed through the cervix by the advancing fetus and rupture, releasing amniotic fluid (breaking water).
