Extraembryonic Visceral Endoderm

The extraembryonic visceral endoderm develops from the hypoblast of the murine embryo and is an extraembryonic tissue with cells that present characteristic microvilli and very large vacuoles. The extraembryonic visceral endoderm is the outer layer of the extraembryonic ectoderm and is not known to contribute directly to the formation of any adult organs.

The extraembryonic visceral endoderm is relevant of murine development, and does not exist in human development.
