  2. 2. Embryogenesis of the Liver <ul><li>Liver premordium appear early in 4 th week at the </li></ul><ul><li>Anterior intestinal portal growing to Caudal side </li></ul><ul><li>of the transverse septum. The septum contains: </li></ul><ul><li> Vitelline veins </li></ul><ul><li> Umbilical veins </li></ul><ul><li>Series of inductions ; </li></ul><ul><li>Mesodern of T Septum is associated w/ developing </li></ul><ul><li>Liver caudally. </li></ul><ul><li>Hepatic mesenchyme stimulates endodermal cord </li></ul><ul><li>growth and differentiation to hepatic cells. </li></ul><ul><li>Primitive endodermal plate becomes diverticulum. </li></ul><ul><li>Hepatic diverticulum develops 2 outpocketings. </li></ul>
