trophoblast cell

One of the epithelial cells forming the surface of the spherical blastocyst stage embryo. Trophoblast cells are destined to give rise to many of the extraembryonic tissues.

Moreover, TLR-3 stimulation induces RANTES secretion by trophoblast cells, which is chemotactic for monocytes [66].
The layer between 45% and 35% Percoll contained the trophoblast cells; this was collected, suspended in DMEM, and centrifuged at 1200 rpm at room temperature for 10 min.
On the other hand, LPS-induced IL-8 and MCP-1mRNA expression and secretion were significantly reduced in siKRAS transfected trophoblast cells (Figures 5(b), 5(c), 5(f), and 5(g)).
In mice, the placenta is composed of trophoblast giant cells (TGC), spongiotrophoblast cells (ST), and glycogen trophoblast cells [8].
Trophoblast cells have particular characteristics as to the expression of HLA molecules (Human Leukocitary Antigen).
HSD11B2 has previously been shown to localise in trophoblast cells, with highest expression observed in the syncytiotrophoblast [31, 32].
Studying development and functions of trophoblastic cells is critical; therefore, in vitro models for culturing primary trophoblast cells are essential.
The layer between the 45% and 35% of Percoll containing trophoblast cells was collected, suspended in DMEM, and centrifuged at 1200 rpm at room temperature for 10 min.
Our data further demonstrated that SOCS-3 is expressed in purified human trophoblasts and JAR trophoblast cell line by RT-PCR and Western blot.
Also, dopamine D1, D2, D4 receptors, another target of atypical antipsychotics, are present in human placental trophoblast cells. They are related to hormonal regulation of human placental lactogen by inhibiting the release (hPL) from trophoblastic cells.
