The foregut gives rise to the oesophagus, trachea and lung buds (see p. 36 and Fig. 7a), stomach, proximal duodenum, liver and biliary system, and pancreas; the midgut forms the primary intestinal loop giving rise to the distal duodenum, jejunum, ileum, caecum, vermiform appendix, ascending and proximal transverse colon; while the hindgut forms the distal transverse, descending and sigmoid colon, rectum and upper part of the anal canal: the lower anal canal is derived from the proctodeum. The stomach appears as a dilatation beyond the oesophagus in the fourth week of development.

Collectively, the remaining layers of the epidermis (granulosum, lucidum and corneum) are often referred to as the horny layer. In the stratum granulosum the cells become increasingly flattened and the process of keratinization begins. The cells in this layer are in the process of dying. A relatively thin transparent layer (the stratum lucidum) lies between the granulosum and the superficial stratum corneum. It is this latter layer from which the cells are shed, and also which is mainly responsible for the thickness of the skin.
