Embryonic disc - histology illustration

Series of transverse sections through the embryonic disk of Tarsius. (After Hubrecht.) Section I passes through the disk, in front of HensenĂ¢'s knot and shows only the ectoderm and entoderm. Sections II, III, and IV pass through HensenĂ¢'s knot, which is seen in V tapering away into the primitive streak. In III, IV, and V the mesoderm is seen springing from the keel-like thickening of the ectoderm, which in III and IV is observed to be continuous into the entoderm.
