  • noun The part of the embryonic mesoderm, consisting of loosely packed, unspecialized cells set in a gelatinous ground substance, from which connective tissue, bone, cartilage, and the circulatory and lymphatic systems develop.

from The Century Dictionary.

  • noun The tissue or substance of the mesoderm of some animals, as sponges.
  • noun In embryology, the whole or a portion of the middle germ-layer, or mesoblast, when this layer is not epithelial, but consists of stellate, loosely interconnected, or even disconnected cells like those seen in primitive forms of connective tissue.

    14 Important Science Questions

  • Embryonic cells, which become singly detached from their epitheliar connections we consider to be something quite different from the germ-layers, and accordingly we call them by the special name of mesenchyme germs or primary cells of the mesenchyme.

  • They distinguished in the middle layer two quite distinct elements, the mesoblast proper, formed by the evagination of the walls of the archenteron, and the mesenchyme, formed by free cells budded off from the germ-layers.
