Cranial Nerve Development Experiment

Embryo details

Species: Gallus gallus domesticus
Embryo Name: RC011
Embryo stage: ST26
Staging description: Staged by Reuben according to the Hamburger and Hamilton (1951) staging system. (Notebook entry 10th January 2011). Staging has not been confirmed.

  • Hindbrain groove present (>ST24).
  • Toes demarcated (>ST25).
  • Beak not present (<ST27)

Cryoprotection: None
Material label and storage: Stored in vial filled with PFA labeled RC-011 and placed in a container labeled 'Reuben's staged embryos' next to the dissection microscope.

Experiment details

Objective:To use as a practice embryo for staging.
Procedure: Staged the embryo by observing the embryo under a dissection microscope and comparing its morphological properties with those described in the Hamburger and Hamilton (1951) paper whilst looking at our own compilation of images organized by stage.


Embryo is approximately ST26.



This embryo may be used in further experiments as approximately a ST26 embryo however confirmation is needed.
