Totipotency of a cell

  1. Nov 26, 2008 #1
    I need some help identifying what three(3) factors that can affect the point at which a cell loses its totipotency or to simplify it, when the cell's fate becomes determined

    My Attempt

    Approximately four days after fertilization and after several cycles of cell division, these totipotent cells begin to specialize. So basically I am thinking at what point is the Zygote not a zygote..is this a reasonable guess?

    I just cant seem to pin point 3 factors

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data



    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution
