trophectoderm

 [trof-ek´to-derm]
the earliest trophoblast.

troph·ec·to·derm

(trof-ek'tō-derm),
Outermost layer of cells in the mammalian blastodermic vesicle, which will make contact with the endometrium and take part in establishing the embryo's means of receiving nutrition; the cell layer from which the trophoblast differentiates.

In conclusion, our results provide evidence that ALCAM is expressed in the luminal and glandular epithelial cells and trophectoderm of conceptuses during the implantation period in pigs.
It was presumed that this is due to an increase in the number of trophectoderm (TE) cells, which may enhance placentogenesis and/or the implantation ability of the embryos (Ohta et al.
In embryogenesis, LIF is normally expressed in the trophectoderm of the developing embryo, with its receptor LIFR expressed throughout the inner cell mass.

This morphological alteration occurs via hyperplasia in the sheep and cow, whereas in the pig the initial stages of trophectoderm elongation take place through cellular reorganization and differentiation, and proliferation is a later event (Geisert et al.
