Lateral Plate Mesoderm

The lateral plate mesoderm is one of the early derivatives of mesoderm after gastrulation. located distal to the notochord and paraxial mesoderm. splits horizontally into the dorsal somatic mesoderm, which underlies the ectoderm, and the ventral splanchnic (visceral) mesoderm, which overlies the endoderm. Gives rise to heart, blood vessels, blood cells and the lining of the body cavities.

Developed on day 17 in humans.
