This makes it likely that it is involved in the budding of haemogenic endothelial cells into circulation. The most significant function of the aorta gonad mesonephros region is its role in definitive haematopoiesis. Time lapse imaging of live zebrafish embryos has provided the visualisation of haematogenic endothelium differentiating into hematopoietic stem cells. Thus indicating the potency of definitive haematopoiesis from this region. This isolates NO signalling as the key factor controlling haematopoiesis, and not just the presence of circulation.

Once these contacts dissolve, the cell, due to its apical-base polarity, moves into the subaortic space and consequently colonises other hematopoietic organs. Specialised endothelial cells on the dorsal aorta of the AGM region, identified as haemogenic endothelium differentiate into haematopoietic stem cells.
In the AGM, endothelial cells line the lumen of the dorsal aorta. There is also another cell population called haematogenic endothelium, which derive from the endothelial layer to produce hematopoietic stem cells. The most significant function of the aorta gonad mesonephros region is its role in definitive haematopoiesis.
However the signalling cascade linking NO moue Runx1 expression is yet to be elucidated.

Time lapse imaging of live zebrafish embryos has provided the visualisation of haematogenic endothelium differentiating into hematopoietic stem cells. The same experiments also showed that once HSCs were produced, Runx1 was no longer required producing no deviation in HSC activity compared to controls. Then these cells undergo a further contraction along the mediolateral axis, bringing together its two lateral endothelial neighbours and releasing its contact with them.
Runx1 has also been implicated in the activation of haemogenic endothelium. A specialised subset of endothelial cells, haemogenic endothelium has the potential to differentiate into haematopoietic stem cells. The aorta-gonad-mesonephros AGM region is an area derived from splanchnopleura mesoderm identified in embryonic humans, mice, and non-mammalian vertebrates such as birds and zebrafish. This would explain the increase in mesenchymal cell number, and the distinct lack of cells positive for other haematopoietic markers.
Retrieved from ” https: It has been suggested that this area, in particular the ventral wall of the dorsal aortais one of the primary origins of the definitive haematopoietic stem cell. Electron microscope images show that these cells maintain contacts through tight junctions. NO signalling has also been shown to control the motility of endothelial cells by regulating the expression of cell adhesion molecules ICAM From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
The AGM region is derived from the mesoderm layer of the embryo.
It contains the dorsal aorta, genital ridges and mesonephros and lies between the notochord and the somatic mesoderm, extending from the umbilicus to the anterior limb bud of the embryo. Articles needing additional references from December All articles needing additional nouse. From about 30 hours post-fertilization, a few hours before the first appearance of dHSCs, many endothelial cells from the aortic floor start contracting and bending towards the subaortic space, usually lasting for 1—2 hours.
Thus indicating the potency of definitive haematopoiesis from this region. When these special endothelial cells were cultured in vitrothey were able to generate haematopoietic stem cells at a higher rate than cells from a haematopoietic origin.
This occurs at E9.
Aorta-gonad-mesonephros – Wikipedia
This isolates NO signalling as the key factor controlling haematopoiesis, and not just the presence of circulation. As mesenchymal cells differentiate into endothelial cells, the absence of RUNX1 may impact on the ability of mesenchymal cells to differentiate into haemogenic endothelial cells.

Haemogenic endothelial cells are specific endothelial cells that concurrently express both haematopoietic and endothelial markers. The aorta-gonad-mesonephros AGM is a region of embryonic mesoderm that develops during embryonic development from the para-aortic splanchnopleura in chick, mouse and human embryos.
However, the precise signalling pathway involved in haemogenic endothelial cell activation is unknown, but several signalling molecules have been implicated including nitric oxide NONotch 1, and Runx1. As Runx1 is also crucial for haemogenic endothelial cell activation, it is possible that NO regulates both of these downstream effects. Definitive haematopoiesis produces hematopoietic stem cells that have the capacity to differentiate any blood cell lineage in the adult circulation.
