Normal chromosomal allocation for the spam is 42 autosomes and one sex

The most common e,mmpie of ectopic pregnancy is the abdominal cavity.

The cytotrophobiast is that part of the blastocyst which forms the embryo.

Mitosis reduces the chromosome number by half.

The ovum is released at owlation.

The neonatal period is 7 days after birth

Sperms become mature celk by spermiogenesis.

The purpose of meiosis is to reduce the number of chrornosornus and the

amount of DNA by a half and to provide for extlhange of genetic material
between homologous chromosomes.

The primordial germ cells migrate from the primitive yolk sac in the third
week; they differentiate into gonads
- by the end of the fifth week.

The primary viili have cvtotrophoblastic cores surrounded bv syncitium.

The 16-cell stage of the embryo is called the rnorula.

Riibslla causes dearness during the 9th week of development.
