Difference between a Protostome and Deuterostome?


The mouth of the animal developing from a protostome develops from the first developmental opening. This opening is called the blastopore. The mouth of the animal developing from the deuterostome develops from the second opening on the dorsal surface, which the blastosphere becomes it's butt. They also have different developmental fates; the protostome's eight cells have determined fates while the deuterostome's eight cells can each develop separately into full organisms.
