The First Cell Fate Decision During Mammalian Development

Abstract

Introduction During mammalian preimplantation development, the fertilized egg divides repeatedly to form seemingly identical totipotent blastomere cells, which are capable of producing any cell in the embryo or its supporting tissues. At some stage, these blastomeres relinquish their totipotency and assume different identities. How and when blastomeres first start down the pathway to adopting different fates remains an open question.
