About the Book

The trophectoderm is responsible for the initial implantation of the conceptus and the formation of the trophoblast components of the placenta. Trophoblast stem cells (TS) are an in vitro model of the trophectoderm lineage in the differentiating placenta. A transcriptional profile was used to analyze the expression of genes characteristic of different cell lineages throughout differentiation to determine if these cells could generate the cell lineages found in vivo. Differentiating TS cells express markers of the extraembryonic ectoderm, ectoplacental cone, labyrinth, spongiotrophoblast, glycogen cells and giant cells in a manner that mirrors in vivo development. Mash2 knockout TS were derived that in vivo do not generate spongiotrophoblast, have reduced labyrinth layer and increased giant cell layer. In vitro Mash2 KO TS cells did not express markers of the spongiotrophoblast but were able to give rise to other cell types, suggesting that they can model mutant placental development.
