Brain-derived neurotrophic factor promotes implantation and subsequent placental development by stimulating trophoblast cell
growth and survival.
Embryonic development and implantation related gene expression of oocyte reconstructed with bovine trophoblast cells
12] demonstrated p24 antigen within scattered Hofbauer cells but not within trophoblast cells
or vascular endothelium, in 5/19 term placentas (26%) from HIV-positive women.
Hypoxia promotes interleukin-6 and -8 but reduces interleukin-10 production by placental trophoblast cells
from preeclamptic pregnancies.
A simple method for comparing immunogold distributions in two or more experimental groups illustrated using GLUT1 labelling of isolated trophoblast cells
The idea of analyzing trophoblast cells
taken from maternal blood or cervical mucus has been pursued for some time.
Natural killer cells might prevent this happening by destroying excess trophoblast cells
- but if too many uNK cells are marshalled too early on, they could prevent the embryo from successfully implanting, leading to a miscarriage.
will form the fetal contribution to the placenta, and the inner cell mass will give rise to the fetus itself.
The placenta is primarily derived from embryonic trophoblast cells
with additional mesodermal cells derived from the inner cell mass.
Provirus genes are known to be expressed in the placenta, where the fetal-maternal interface, or syncytiotrophoblast, is a thin layer of fused fetal trophoblast cells
Isolation of Petal Trophoblast Cells
from Peripheral Blood of Pregnant Women, 336 LANCET 197 (1990).
Once activated, these primitive cells start maturing and behaving like trophoblast cells
, and trophoblast cells
are what house the fetus in an expectant mother.
