Ventral Foregut Endoderm

The ventral foregut endoderm is the origin of liver development (which occurs at around E8 in mice). The ventral pancreatic bud is also derived from the ventral foregut endoderm, (visible in mice from around E10), and later rotates dorsally, fusing with the dorsal pancreatic bud to form the pancreas. Similarly, the lungs bud from the ventral foregut endoderm, starting at E9.5.

Separation of the foregut tube into the trachea and esophagus begins just anterior to the lung buds.
