A highly vascularized mammalian fetal-maternal organ and major site of transport of oxygen, nutrients, and fetal waste products. It includes a fetal portion (CHORIONIC VILLI) derived from TROPHOBLASTS and a maternal portion (DECIDUA) derived from the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The placenta produces an array of steroid, protein and peptide hormones (PLACENTAL HORMONES).
Pathological processes or abnormal functions of the PLACENTA.
Abnormal placentation in which the PLACENTA implants in the lower segment of the UTERUS (the zone of dilation) and may cover part or all of the opening of the CERVIX. It is often associated with serious antepartum bleeding and PREMATURE LABOR.
Abnormal placentation in which all or parts of the PLACENTA are attached directly to the MYOMETRIUM due to a complete or partial absence of DECIDUA. It is associated with POSTPARTUM HEMORRHAGE because of the failure of placental separation.
A placenta that fails to be expelled after BIRTH of the FETUS. A PLACENTA is retained when the UTERUS fails to contract after the delivery of its content, or when the placenta is abnormally attached to the MYOMETRIUM.
The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.
Cells lining the outside of the BLASTOCYST. After binding to the ENDOMETRIUM, trophoblasts develop into two distinct layers, an inner layer of mononuclear cytotrophoblasts and an outer layer of continuous multinuclear cytoplasm, the syncytiotrophoblasts, which form the early fetal-maternal interface (PLACENTA).
The threadlike, vascular projections of the chorion. Chorionic villi may be free or embedded within the DECIDUA forming the site for exchange of substances between fetal and maternal blood (PLACENTA).
Exchange of substances between the maternal blood and the fetal blood at the PLACENTA via PLACENTAL CIRCULATION. The placental barrier excludes microbial or viral transmission.
Proteins produced by organs of the mother or the PLACENTA during PREGNANCY. These proteins may be pregnancy-specific (present only during pregnancy) or pregnancy-associated (present during pregnancy or under other conditions such as hormone therapy or certain malignancies.)
The development of the PLACENTA, a highly vascularized mammalian fetal-maternal organ and major site of transport of oxygen, nutrients, and fetal waste products between mother and FETUS. The process begins at FERTILIZATION, through the development of CYTOTROPHOBLASTS and SYNCYTIOTROPHOBLASTS, the formation of CHORIONIC VILLI, to the progressive increase in BLOOD VESSELS to support the growing fetus.
The unborn young of a viviparous mammal, in the postembryonic period, after the major structures have been outlined. In humans, the unborn young from the end of the eighth week after CONCEPTION until BIRTH, as distinguished from the earlier EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN.
A complication of PREGNANCY, characterized by a complex of symptoms including maternal HYPERTENSION and PROTEINURIA with or without pathological EDEMA. Symptoms may range between mild and severe. Pre-eclampsia usually occurs after the 20th week of gestation, but may develop before this time in the presence of trophoblastic disease.
The age of the conceptus, beginning from the time of FERTILIZATION. In clinical obstetrics, the gestational age is often estimated as the time from the last day of the last MENSTRUATION which is about 2 weeks before OVULATION and fertilization.
The thin layers of tissue that surround the developing embryo. There are four extra-embryonic membranes commonly found in VERTEBRATES, such as REPTILES; BIRDS; and MAMMALS. They are the YOLK SAC, the ALLANTOIS, the AMNION, and the CHORION. These membranes provide protection and means to transport nutrients and wastes.
The outermost extra-embryonic membrane surrounding the developing embryo. In REPTILES and BIRDS, it adheres to the shell and allows exchange of gases between the egg and its environment. In MAMMALS, the chorion evolves into the fetal contribution of the PLACENTA.
The last third of a human PREGNANCY, from the beginning of the 29th through the 42nd completed week (197 to 294 days) of gestation.
The process of bearing developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero in non-human mammals, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.
The beginning third of a human PREGNANCY, from the first day of the last normal menstrual period (MENSTRUATION) through the completion of 14 weeks (98 days) of gestation.
A polypeptide hormone of approximately 25 kDa that is produced by the SYNCYTIOTROPHOBLASTS of the PLACENTA, also known as chorionic somatomammotropin. It has both GROWTH HORMONE and PROLACTIN activities on growth, lactation, and luteal steroid production. In women, placental lactogen secretion begins soon after implantation and increases to 1 g or more a day in late pregnancy. Placental lactogen is also an insulin antagonist.
The hormone-responsive glandular layer of ENDOMETRIUM that sloughs off at each menstrual flow (decidua menstrualis) or at the termination of pregnancy. During pregnancy, the thickest part of the decidua forms the maternal portion of the PLACENTA, thus named decidua placentalis. The thin portion of the decidua covering the rest of the embryo is the decidua capsularis.
The circulation of BLOOD, of both the mother and the FETUS, through the PLACENTA.
A malignant metastatic form of trophoblastic tumors. Unlike the HYDATIDIFORM MOLE, choriocarcinoma contains no CHORIONIC VILLI but rather sheets of undifferentiated cytotrophoblasts and syncytiotrophoblasts (TROPHOBLASTS). It is characterized by the large amounts of CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN produced. Tissue origins can be determined by DNA analyses: placental (fetal) origin or non-placental origin (CHORIOCARCINOMA, NON-GESTATIONAL).
The failure of a FETUS to attain its expected FETAL GROWTH at any GESTATIONAL AGE.
The hollow thick-walled muscular organ in the female PELVIS. It consists of the fundus (the body) which is the site of EMBRYO IMPLANTATION and FETAL DEVELOPMENT. Beyond the isthmus at the perineal end of fundus, is CERVIX UTERI (the neck) opening into VAGINA. Beyond the isthmi at the upper abdominal end of fundus, are the FALLOPIAN TUBES.
Morphological and physiological development of FETUSES.
Hormones produced by the placenta include CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN, and PLACENTAL LACTOGEN as well as steroids (ESTROGENS; PROGESTERONE), and neuropeptide hormones similar to those found in the hypothalamus (HYPOTHALAMIC HORMONES).
Premature expulsion of the FETUS in animals.
The innermost membranous sac that surrounds and protects the developing embryo which is bathed in the AMNIOTIC FLUID. Amnion cells are secretory EPITHELIAL CELLS and contribute to the amniotic fluid.
Extraction of the FETUS by means of abdominal HYSTEROTOMY.
The repetitive uterine contraction during childbirth which is associated with the progressive dilation of the uterine cervix (CERVIX UTERI). Successful labor results in the expulsion of the FETUS and PLACENTA. Obstetric labor can be spontaneous or induced (LABOR, INDUCED).
The middle third of a human PREGNANCY, from the beginning of the 15th through the 28th completed week (99 to 196 days) of gestation.
The co-occurrence of pregnancy and parasitic diseases. The parasitic infection may precede or follow FERTILIZATION.
A clear, yellowish liquid that envelopes the FETUS inside the sac of AMNION. In the first trimester, it is likely a transudate of maternal or fetal plasma. In the second trimester, amniotic fluid derives primarily from fetal lung and kidney. Cells or substances in this fluid can be removed for prenatal diagnostic tests (AMNIOCENTESIS).
Histochemical localization of immunoreactive substances using labeled antibodies as reagents.
The flexible rope-like structure that connects a developing FETUS to the PLACENTA in mammals. The cord contains blood vessels which carry oxygen and nutrients from the mother to the fetus and waste products away from the fetus.
Trophoblastic hyperplasia associated with normal gestation, or molar pregnancy. It is characterized by the swelling of the CHORIONIC VILLI and elevated human CHORIONIC GONADOTROPIN. Hydatidiform moles or molar pregnancy may be categorized as complete or partial based on their gross morphology, histopathology, and karyotype.
The first of four extra-embryonic membranes to form during EMBRYOGENESIS. In REPTILES and BIRDS, it arises from endoderm and mesoderm to incorporate the EGG YOLK into the DIGESTIVE TRACT for nourishing the embryo. In placental MAMMALS, its nutritional function is vestigial; however, it is the source of INTESTINAL MUCOSA; BLOOD CELLS; and GERM CELLS. It is sometimes called the vitelline sac, which should not be confused with the VITELLINE MEMBRANE of the egg.
Conditions or pathological processes associated with pregnancy. They can occur during or after pregnancy, and range from minor discomforts to serious diseases that require medical interventions. They include diseases in pregnant females, and pregnancies in females with diseases.
The variable phenotypic expression of a GENE depending on whether it is of paternal or maternal origin, which is a function of the DNA METHYLATION pattern. Imprinted regions are observed to be more methylated and less transcriptionally active. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)
Death of the developing young in utero. BIRTH of a dead FETUS is STILLBIRTH.
INFLAMMATION of the placental membranes (CHORION; AMNION) and connected tissues such as fetal BLOOD VESSELS and UMBILICAL CORD. It is often associated with intrauterine ascending infections during PREGNANCY.
Descriptions of specific amino acid, carbohydrate, or nucleotide sequences which have appeared in the published literature and/or are deposited in and maintained by databanks such as GENBANK, European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), National Biomedical Research Foundation (NBRF), or other sequence repositories.
Extracts prepared from placental tissue; they may contain specific but uncharacterized factors or proteins with specific activities.
Blood of the fetus. Exchange of nutrients and waste between the fetal and maternal blood occurs via the PLACENTA. The cord blood is blood contained in the umbilical vessels (UMBILICAL CORD) at the time of delivery.
An extra-embryonic membranous sac derived from the YOLK SAC of REPTILES; BIRDS; and MAMMALS. It lies between two other extra-embryonic membranes, the AMNION and the CHORION. The allantois serves to store urinary wastes and mediate exchange of gas and nutrients for the developing embryo.
The sequence of PURINES and PYRIMIDINES in nucleic acids and polynucleotides. It is also called nucleotide sequence.
The co-occurrence of pregnancy and an INFECTION. The infection may precede or follow FERTILIZATION.
A mammalian fetus expelled by INDUCED ABORTION or SPONTANEOUS ABORTION.
Accumulation of a drug or chemical substance in various organs (including those not relevant to its pharmacologic or therapeutic action). This distribution depends on the blood flow or perfusion rate of the organ, the ability of the drug to penetrate organ membranes, tissue specificity, protein binding. The distribution is usually expressed as tissue to plasma ratios.
The order of amino acids as they occur in a polypeptide chain. This is referred to as the primary structure of proteins. It is of fundamental importance in determining PROTEIN CONFORMATION.
An infant during the first month after birth.
Excess blood loss from uterine bleeding associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH. It is defined as blood loss greater than 500 ml or of the amount that adversely affects the maternal physiology, such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEMATOCRIT. Postpartum hemorrhage is divided into two categories, immediate (within first 24 hours after birth) or delayed (after 24 hours postpartum).
The phenotypic manifestation of a gene or genes by the processes of GENETIC TRANSCRIPTION and GENETIC TRANSLATION.
A family of fungi, order POLYPORALES, found on decaying wood.
The visualization of tissues during pregnancy through recording of the echoes of ultrasonic waves directed into the body. The procedure may be applied with reference to the mother or the fetus and with reference to organs or the detection of maternal or fetal disease.
The three approximately equal periods of a normal human PREGNANCY. Each trimester is about three months or 13 to 14 weeks in duration depending on the designation of the first day of gestation.
A 180-kDa VEGF receptor found primarily in endothelial cells that is essential for vasculogenesis and vascular maintenance. It is also known as Flt-1 (fms-like tyrosine kinase receptor-1). A soluble, alternatively spliced isoform of the receptor may serve as a binding protein that regulates the availability of various ligands for VEGF receptor binding and signal transduction.

The effects of digestive enzymes on characteristics of placental insulin receptor. Comparison of particulate and soluble receptor preparations. (1/7305)

The role of the surrounding membrane structure on the binding characteristics of the insulin receptor was studied by using several digestive enzymes. The effects observed with particulate membrane preparations are compared with those from soluble receptor preparations. beta-Galactosidase and neuraminidase had no effect on insulin binding to either particulate or soluble receptors from human placentae. Exposure to 2 units of phospholipase C/ml increased insulin binding to particulate membranes, but was without effect on the soluble receptor preparation. The increase in binding to particulate membranes was shown to be due to an increase in apparent receptor number. After 5 min exposure to 500 microgram of trypsin/ml there was an increase in insulin binding to the particulate membrane fraction, owing to an increase in receptor affinity. After 15 min exposure to this amount of trypsin, binding decreased, owing to a progressive decrease in receptor availability. In contrast, this concentration of trypsin had no effect on the solubilized receptor preparation. Because of the differential effects of phospholipase C and trypsin on the particulate compared with the solubilized receptor preparations, it is concluded that the effects of these enzymes were due to an effect on the surrounding membrane structure. Changes in receptor configuration due to alterations within the adjoining membrane provide a potential mechanism for mediating short-term alterations in receptor function.  (+info)

Mrj encodes a DnaJ-related co-chaperone that is essential for murine placental development. (2/7305)

We have identified a novel gene in a gene trap screen that encodes a protein related to the DnaJ co-chaperone in E. coli. The gene, named Mrj (mammalian relative of DnaJ) was expressed throughout development in both the embryo and placenta. Within the placenta, expression was particularly high in trophoblast giant cells but moderate levels were also observed in trophoblast cells of the chorion at embryonic day 8.5, and later in the labyrinth which arises from the attachment of the chorion to the allantois (a process called chorioallantoic fusion). Insertion of the ROSAbetageo gene trap vector into the Mrj gene created a null allele. Homozygous Mrj mutants died at mid-gestation due to a failure of chorioallantoic fusion at embryonic day 8.5, which precluded formation of the mature placenta. At embryonic day 8.5, the chorion in mutants was morphologically normal and expressed the cell adhesion molecule beta4 integrin that is known to be required for chorioallantoic fusion. However, expression of the chorionic trophoblast-specific transcription factor genes Err2 and Gcm1 was significantly reduced. The mutants showed no abnormal phenotypes in other trophoblast cell types or in the embryo proper. This study indicates a previously unsuspected role for chaperone proteins in placental development and represents the first genetic analysis of DnaJ-related protein function in higher eukaryotes. Based on a survey of EST databases representing different mouse tissues and embryonic stages, there are 40 or more DnaJ-related genes in mammals. In addition to Mrj, at least two of these genes are also expressed in the developing mouse placenta. The specificity of the developmental defect in Mrj mutants suggests that each of these genes may have unique tissue and cellular activities.  (+info)

JunB is essential for mammalian placentation. (3/7305)

Lack of JunB, an immediate early gene product and member of the AP-1 transcription factor family causes embryonic lethality between E8.5 and E10.0. Although mutant embryos are severely retarded in growth and development, cellular proliferation is apparently not impaired. Retardation and embryonic death are caused by the inability of JunB-deficient embryos to establish proper vascular interactions with the maternal circulation due to multiple defects in extra-embryonic tissues. The onset of the phenotypic defects correlates well with high expression of junB in wild-type extra-embryonic tissues. In trophoblasts, the lack of JunB causes a deregulation of proliferin, matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9) and urokinase plasminogen activator (uPA) gene expression, resulting in a defective neovascularization of the decidua. As a result of downregulation of the VEGF-receptor 1 (flt-1), blood vessels in the yolk sac mesoderm appeared dilated. Mutant embryos which escape these initial defects finally die from a non-vascularized placental labyrinth. Injection of junB-/- embryonic stem (ES) cells into tetraploid wild-type blastocysts resulted in a partial rescue, in which the ES cell-derived fetuses were no longer growth retarded and displayed a normal placental labyrinth. Therefore, JunB appears to be involved in multiple signaling pathways regulating genes involved in the establishment of a proper feto-maternal circulatory system.  (+info)

Canine preprorelaxin: nucleic acid sequence and localization within the canine placenta. (4/7305)

Employing uteroplacental tissue at Day 35 of gestation, we determined the nucleic acid sequence of canine preprorelaxin using reverse transcription- and rapid amplification of cDNA ends-polymerase chain reaction. Canine preprorelaxin cDNA consisted of 534 base pairs encoding a protein of 177 amino acids with a signal peptide of 25 amino acids (aa), a B domain of 35 aa, a C domain of 93 aa, and an A domain of 24 aa. The putative receptor binding region in the N'-terminal part of the canine relaxin B domain GRDYVR contained two substitutions from the classical motif (E-->D and L-->Y). Canine preprorelaxin shared highest homology with porcine and equine preprorelaxin. Northern analysis revealed a 1-kilobase transcript present in total RNA of canine uteroplacental tissue but not of kidney tissue. Uteroplacental tissue from two bitches each at Days 30 and 35 of gestation were studied by in situ hybridization to localize relaxin mRNA. Immunohistochemistry for relaxin, cytokeratin, vimentin, and von Willebrand factor was performed on uteroplacental tissue at Day 30 of gestation. The basal cell layer at the core of the chorionic villi was devoid of relaxin mRNA and immunoreactive relaxin or vimentin but was immunopositive for cytokeratin and identified as cytotrophoblast cells. The cell layer surrounding the chorionic villi displayed specific hybridization signals for relaxin mRNA and immunoreactivity for relaxin and cytokeratin but not for vimentin, and was identified as syncytiotrophoblast. Those areas of the chorioallantoic tissue with most intense relaxin immunoreactivity were highly vascularized as demonstrated by immunoreactive von Willebrand factor expressed on vascular endothelium. The uterine glands and nonplacental uterine areas of the canine zonary girdle placenta were devoid of relaxin mRNA and relaxin. We conclude that the syncytiotrophoblast is the source of relaxin in the canine placenta.  (+info)

Production of prostaglandin f2alpha and its metabolite by endometrium and yolk sac placenta in late gestation in the tammar wallaby, Macropus Eugenii. (5/7305)

In this study, we investigated production of prostaglandin (PG) F2alpha and its metabolite, PGFM, by uterine tissues from tammar wallabies in late pregnancy. Endometrial explants were prepared from gravid and nongravid uteri of tammars between Day 18 of gestation (primitive streak) and Day 26.5 (term) and were incubated in Ham's F-10 medium supplemented with glutamine and antibiotics for 20 h. PGF2alpha and PGFM in the medium were assayed by specific, validated RIAs. Control tissues (leg muscle) did not produce detectable amounts of either PG. Both gravid and nongravid endometria secreted PGF2alpha, and production increased significantly in both gravid and nongravid uteri towards term. PGFM was produced in small amounts by both gravid and nongravid uteri, and the rate of production did not increase. Neither oxytocin nor dexamethasone stimulated PG production in vitro in any tissue at any stage. Thus, the surge in peripheral plasma PGFM levels seen at parturition may arise from increased uterine PG production, but further study is needed to define what triggers this release.  (+info)

Expression of trophinin, tastin, and bystin by trophoblast and endometrial cells in human placenta. (6/7305)

Trophinin, tastin, and bystin comprise a complex mediating a unique homophilic cell adhesion between trophoblast and endometrial epithelial cells at their respective apical cell surfaces. In this study, we prepared mouse monoclonal antibodies specific to each of these molecules. The expression of these molecules in the human placenta was examined immunohistochemically using the antibodies. In placenta from the 6th week of pregnancy, trophinin and bystin were found in the cytoplasm of the syncytiotrophoblast in the chorionic villi, and in endometrial decidual cells at the utero placental interface. Tastin was exclusively present on the apical side of the syncytiotrophoblast. Tissue sections were also examined by in situ hybridization using RNA probes specific to each of these molecules. This analysis showed that trophoblast and endometrial epithelial cells at the utero placental interface express trophinin, tastin, and bystin. In wk 10 placenta, trophinin and bystin were found in the intravillous cytotrophoblast, while tastin was not found in the villi. After wk 10, levels of all three proteins decreased and then disappeared from placental villi.  (+info)

Syntaxin 11 is associated with SNAP-23 on late endosomes and the trans-Golgi network. (7/7305)

SNARE proteins are known to play a role in regulating intracellular protein transport between donor and target membranes. This docking and fusion process involves the interaction of specific vesicle-SNAREs (e.g. VAMP) with specific cognate target-SNAREs (e.g. syntaxin and SNAP-23). Using human SNAP-23 as the bait in a yeast two-hybrid screen of a human B-lymphocyte cDNA library, we have identified the 287-amino-acid SNARE protein syntaxin 11. Like other syntaxin family members, syntaxin 11 binds to the SNARE proteins VAMP and SNAP-23 in vitro and also exists in a complex with SNAP-23 in transfected HeLa cells and in native human B lymphocytes. Unlike other syntaxin family members, no obvious transmembrane domain is present in syntaxin 11. Nevertheless, syntaxin 11 is predominantly membrane-associated and colocalizes with the mannose 6-phosphate receptor on late endosomes and the trans-Golgi network. These data suggest that syntaxin 11 is a SNARE that acts to regulate protein transport between late endosomes and the trans-Golgi network in mammalian cells.  (+info)

The CTLA-4 gene is expressed in placental fibroblasts. (8/7305)

In order to elucidate the mechanisms that ensure survival of the allogeneic fetus, we are investigating the expression pattern of genes that are involved in peripheral self-tolerance in tissues at the maternal-fetal interface. Cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated protein 4 (CTLA-4) is a negative regulator of T cell activation and may modulate peripheral self-tolerance. Previously, we reported the preferential transmission of maternally-inherited shorter alleles at a 3'-UTR microsatellite locus to liveborn children, but random transmission of paternally-inherited alleles, suggesting that CTLA-4 may be involved in the maintenance of tolerance at the maternal-fetal interface. In this report, we demonstrate that CTLA-4 mRNA and protein are indeed expressed in fetal tissues at the maternal-fetal interface throughout gestation.  (+info)

TY - JOUR. T1 - Leptin secretion to both the maternal and fetal circulation in the ex vivo perfused human term placenta. AU - Hoggard, N AU - Crabtree, J AU - Allstaff, S AU - Abramovich, D R AU - Haggarty, Paul. PY - 2001/4. Y1 - 2001/4. N2 - The contribution of placental leptin, if any, to both the fetal and maternal circulation and its role in pregnancy remains to be determined. In an experiment to investigate this, 27 placentae from term pregnancies were perfused ex vivo (gestational age=39.5 s.d. 1.2; range=38-42 weeks: fetal weight=3285 s.d. 482; range=2480-4420; birthweight centile range=4th to the 98th) at both the maternal and fetal interface. Placental leptin was exported into both the maternal and fetal circulations. The log leptin production by the maternal side of the placenta was significantly greater (P=0.001) than that for the fetal side (5.193 s.d.1.049 versus 4.387 s.d. 0.768 ng/placenta/min), There was no significant relationship between maternal and fetal log leptin ...

Despite the importance of placenta in mediating rapid physiological changes in pregnancy, data on temporal dynamics of placental gene expression are limited. We completed the first transcriptome profiling of human placental gene expression dynamics (GeneChips, Affymetrix®; ∼47,000 transcripts) from early to mid-gestation (n = 10; gestational weeks 5-18) and report 154 genes with significant transcriptional changes (ANOVA, FDR P|0.1). TaqMan RT-qPCR analysis (n = 43; gestational weeks 5-41) confirmed a significant (ANOVA and t-test, FDR P|0.05) mid-gestational peak of placental gene expression for BMP5, CCNG2, CDH11, FST, GATM, GPR183, ITGBL1, PLAGL1, SLC16A10 and STC1, followed by sharp decrease in mRNA levels at term (t-test, FDR P|0.05). We hypothesized that normal course of late pregnancy may be affected when genes characteristic to mid-gestation placenta remain highly expressed until term, and analyzed their expression in term placentas from normal and complicated pregnancies [preeclampsia (PE),
Placenta has come in many forms, from tablets, capsules, jelly, injectibles to dried placenta and drinks. Placenta drinks are the rarest and first formulated in Japan. One of the popular drinks is the Placenta 10000 drink from Nihon Sofuken.. Placenta drinks have active ingredients sourced from pig as well as horse placenta. To ensure the taste of placenta drink is good and likeable, it is also produced as blended drinks, jelly drinks and smoothies.. In fact, to reduce the high-density animal smell of the placenta, flavourings are added such as peach and apple. However, placenta drink has lower absorption rate compared to capsule form as it is destroyed by gastric juices.. Placenta drinks are formulated to improve skin condition and to ensure one stays beautiful and youthful looking. This is evident when some of the brands added hyaluronic acid and collagen in the placenta drink.. All in all, compared to other forms of placenta products, placenta drinks have lower market acceptance. Perhaps, ...

Scientists at Childrens Hospital Oakland Research Institute (CHORI) led by Vladimir Serikov, MD, PhD, and Frans Kuypers, PhD, report in the current Epub issue of Stem Cells Translational Medicine that placental stem cells with important therapeutic properties can be harvested in large quantities from the fetal side of human term placentas (called the chorion). The chorion is a part of the afterbirth and is normally discarded after delivery, but it contains stem cells of fetal origin that appear to be pluripotent -- i.e., they can differentiate into different types of human cells, such as lung, liver, or brain cells. Since these functional placental stem cells can be isolated from either fresh or frozen term human placentas, this implies that if each individuals placenta is stored at birth instead of thrown away, these cells can be harvested in the future if therapeutic need arises. This potential represents a major breakthrough in the stem cell field.
Human placenta releases specific nanovesicles (i.e. exosomes) into the maternal circulation during pregnancy, however, the presence of placenta-derived exosomes in maternal blood during early pregnancy remains to be established. The aim of this study was to characterise gestational age related changes in the concentration of placenta-derived exosomes during the first trimester of pregnancy (i.e. from 6 to 12 weeks) in plasma from women with normal pregnancies. A time-series experimental design was used to establish pregnancy-associated changes in maternal plasma exosome concentrations during the first trimester. A series of plasma were collected from normal healthy women (10 patients) at 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 weeks of gestation (n = 70). We measured the stability of these vesicles by quantifying and observing their protein and miRNA contents after the freeze/thawing processes. Exosomes were isolated by differential and buoyant density centrifugation using a sucrose continuous gradient and

Tfeb is a member of the basic Helix-Loop-Helix-Zipper family of transcription factors. In vitro studies have shown that TFEB can bind DNA as a homodimer or as a heterodimer with three closely related family members: MITF, TFE3 and TFEC. While mutations of Mitf have been shown to affect the development of a number of cell types including melanocytes, osteoclasts, and masts cells, little is known about the phenotypic consequences of mutations at Tfe3, Tfeb and Tfec. Here we show that mice with a targeted disruption of Tfeb die between 9.5 and 10.5 days in embryonic development and have severe defects in placental vascularization. Tfeb is expressed at low levels in the embryo but at high levels in the labyrinthine trophoblast cells of the placenta. While labyrinthine cells are present in the mutant Tfeb placenta, they fail to express VEGF, a potent mitogen required for normal vasculogenesis of the embryo and extraembryonic tissues. In Tfeb mutant embryos the embryonic vasculature forms normally but ...
Even though all mammals have placentas, mammalian placentas are different, even between species we would think should be very similar, like the subjects of this paper, mice and rats. Between mice and rats, the building blocks of a placenta, the genes, are related, and yet the mature placentas are distinct.. How?. You might have run into this situation before- You know how humans and chimpanzees and bonobos share most of the same genes… and yet humans and chimpanzees and bonobos are all distinct species? The trick is the regulation of the same genes. More of Gene A. Less of Gene B. Gene C doesnt turn on at all. Gene D is expressed at the same rate, but earlier. Gene E later. Different species are different recipes using the same ingredients.. And it appears as if ERVs are helping write the recipes in mouse and rat placentas.. These researchers started by mapping the epigenetic landscape of the mouse and rat embryonic cells that start making mouse and rat placentas. And by mapped the ...
Placenta of pregnant mother all have big adventure - Sohu maternal pregnant mother will experience all the great adventure adventure of placenta attribute describes the placenta and fetus are evolved from the same fertilized egg to the placenta is extraembryonic structure. When the embryo develops to 13-21 day, the main structure of placenta, villi, is gradually formed. Around the first week after fertilization, when the blood vessels are formed in the villi, the placental circulation is established. Placenta along with the baby with a long, but also to provide the babys growth needs of nutrients, placental maturity directly affect the babys nutritional supply. Placental maturity level introduces the increase in the cycle of pregnancy, maternal placenta will appear from the new to the old changes, called maturity, is divided into four levels, namely: level 0, level 1, level 3 and level. In October, the bacteria told the mother, usually seen in the B ultrasound on the placenta grading refers to ...
The use of the placenta essence in making cosmetics is considered as one of the most striking and marvelous innovations nowadays. Products with placenta are highly valued because of their great effect on skin. The placenta is the lining of the womb that is expelled after birth. It is claimed that it is rich in nutrients. This is because the placenta is where the foeutus receives nourishments. Placenta cosmetics is believed to have a lot of benefits for the skin. It helps to maintain skins youth and increases its vitality and elasticity. Manufacturers of cosmetics believe that the cells extracted from the placenta promote the stimulation of tissue growth and remove wrinkles. Thus, placenta is a very effective and popular anti - ageing product. Additionally, it has been proven that natural skin care products with cell extracts (e.g. placenta) are more effective than those without cell extracts. For example, researchers say that people using cosmetics made with plant extracts sooner or later ...
The placenta often plays an important role in various cultures, with many societies conducting rituals regarding its disposal. In the Western world, the placenta is most often incinerated.[35]. Some cultures bury the placenta for various reasons. The Māori of New Zealand traditionally bury the placenta from a newborn child to emphasize the relationship between humans and the earth.[36] Likewise, the Navajo bury the placenta and umbilical cord at a specially chosen site,[37] particularly if the baby dies during birth.[38] In Cambodia and Costa Rica, burial of the placenta is believed to protect and ensure the health of the baby and the mother.[39] If a mother dies in childbirth, the Aymara of Bolivia bury the placenta in a secret place so that the mothers spirit will not return to claim her babys life.[40]. The placenta is believed by some communities to have power over the lives of the baby or its parents. The Kwakiutl of British Columbia bury girls placentas to give the girl skill in ...
As a first step to explore the possible relationships existing between the effects of low oxygen pressure in the first trimester placenta and placental pathologies developing from mid-gestation, two subtracted libraries totaling 2304 cDNA clones were constructed. For achieving this, two reciprocal suppressive/subtractive hybridization procedures (SSH) were applied to early (11 weeks) human placental villi after incubation either in normoxic or in hypoxic conditions. The clones from both libraries (1440 hypoxia-specific and 864 normoxia-specific) were spotted on nylon macroarrays. Complex cDNAs probes prepared from placental villi (either from early pregnancy, after hypoxic or normoxic culture conditions, or near term for controls or pathological placentas) were hybridized to the membranes. Three hundred and fifty nine clones presenting a hybridization signal above the background were sequenced and shown to correspond to 276 different genes. Nine of these genes are mitochondrial, while 267 are nuclear.

Here, we compared bacterial DNA recovered from placental samples from six uncomplicated deliveries at term (both fetal side and maternal side internal tissues) to contamination controls. We assayed (1) the absolute number of 16S rRNA gene copies and (2) overall community structure queried by deep sequencing of 16S rRNA gene tags. In the qPCR analysis, both the placental samples and contamination controls yielded quite low values, with no clear signal in the placental samples above negative controls. In the community analysis, there was no clear separation of placental samples from contamination controls based on PERMANOVA analysis of the Bray-Curtis and UniFrac distances nor were any placental-enriched lineages detected reproducibly that were present as 1 % of the community or greater. Thus, we were unable to detect any consistent differences between the placental samples and contamination controls.. We compared two DNA purification methods, which helped to clarify the influence of contamination ...
05/04/07 10:50 AM >>> Our OB/GYN department is requesting we accession/receive all placentas. They want us to continue with the gross and micro for the one that meet the criteria for examination. For the normal placentas, they want us to gross the placenta, take a few sections and store these sections (uncut) for up to 20 years. Is there any pathology departments that receive all placentas? If you do, do you perform just a gross exam on the normal placentas or do you perform a gross and micro on all specimens? If you receive all placentas, do the insurance companies reimburse for the normal (the ones that do not meet the CAP guidelines for examination) placentas? Please contact me if your hospital does this or something similar with the placentas.

AIM: To obtain some insight into the extracellular matrix in the placenta, changes in the composition of collagens during placental development were investigated. METHODS: Collagen was extracted from placentas (group 1, 25-30 weeks, n = 21; group 2, 31-36 weeks, n = 32; and group 3, 37-41 weeks of gestation, n = 40) and the relative concentrations of various collagens were evaluated by SDS-PAGE. RESULTS: The ratio of the intensity of the alpha 1 (III) band to that of alpha 1 (I) chain collagen in group 3 placentas were lower than those in group 1 placentas. In contrast, the ratio of the intensity of the alpha 1 (V) band to that of alpha 1 (I) chain collagen in group 3 placentas were higher than those in group 1 and group 2 placentas. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that type V collagen might play an important role in the function of the placenta and that an increased relative concentration of type V collagen might be closely associated with the development and ageing of the placenta.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Cellular localization of CD4 in the human placenta. T2 - Implications for maternal-to-fetal transmission of HIV. AU - Lairmore, Michael Dale. AU - Cuthbert, Peggy S.. AU - Utley, Lori L.. AU - Morgan, Claudia J.. AU - Dezzutti, Charlene S.. AU - Anderson, Clark L.. AU - Sedmak, Daniel D.. PY - 1993/8/1. Y1 - 1993/8/1. N2 - CD4 is a 55-kDa glycoprotein that serves as an important cellular differentiation Ag and cell signaling protein on T lymphocytes, as well as a principal receptor for HIV-1 on a variety of cell types including lymphocytes. CD4 receptor expression in syncytiotrophoblasts, the principal cellular barrier in the human placenta, has not been clearly defined. Knowledge concerning the expression of the CD4 receptor on placental trophoblasts is important to define potential mechanisms of transmission of the virus between maternal blood and fetal tissues. Both mature and immature placenta (n = 10) were examined using an avidin D-based immunohistochemical procedure that ...
Although a special formative power has been assigned to glycogen ever since the widespread distribution of this substance in the growing tissues of embryos became known, no systematic quantitative investigations into the glycogenic changes of the embryo have yet been made. The histological observations of Maximow and of Chipman on the placenta of the rabbit showed that glycogen appears in the walls of the maternal placenta at about the 8th day of pregnancy, and increases in amount until a maximum is reached at the 12-16th day. After mid-term the glycogen diminishes, and completely disappears at the end of gestation from that part of the maternal placenta which is next to the fœtal part of the placenta. In the fœtal placenta no glycogen could be demonstrated histologically. In Ruminants, conditions differ entirely from the rabbit. Bernard himself, in investigations extending over several years, failed to find glycogen in the placentæ of sheep and cows. He did, however, find it in the flattened ...
As for why Japan is actually related to the custom, Japan has not broken down in the cultural heritage and has always had the tradition of umbilical cord placenta medicine. Even before the dried umbilical cord was stored in a brocade box to save lives, and based on this tradition, It is not surprising that JAPAN BIOPRODUCTS INDUSTRY CO., LTD has become the worlds first professional organization devoted to the commercialization and research of hormone free placenta human placenta research.

The effects of antenatal depression and antidepressant treatment during pregnancy on both mother and child are vigorously studied, but the underlying biology for these effects is largely unknown. The placenta plays a crucial role in the growth and development of the fetus. We performed a gene expression study on the fetal side of the placenta to investigate gene expression patterns in mothers with antenatal depression and in mothers using antidepressant treatment during pregnancy. Placental samples from mothers with normal pregnancies, from mothers with antenatal depression, and from mothers using antidepressants were collected. We performed a pilot microarray study to investigate alterations in the gene expression and selected several genes from the microarray for biological validation with qPCR in a larger sample. In mothers with antenatal depression 108 genes were differentially expressed, whereas 109 genes were differentially expressed in those using antidepressants. Validation of the ...

The mouse haemochorial placenta is a complex mixture of maternal cells and foetal trophectoderm and inner cell mass (ICM)-derived cells. The majority of the placental tissue is assumed to be trophoblast in origin but the exact extent and localization of the ICM and maternal contribution has not previously been determined. Using embryo transfer and reconstituted blastocyst techniques, combined with isozymal and in situ genetic markers, we have established that about 70% of the 13 to 15-day placenta is trophectoderm-derived, 30% is maternal in origin, and 4% develops from the ICM. Nearly all of the maternal contribution was confined to the spongiotrophoblast region and all of the ICM contribution was confined to the labyrinthine trophoblast region, where it formed the foetal blood capillaries and the endodermal sinuses. Using the same genetic markers, we showed that cell suspension techniques commonly used to produce trophoblast cell preparations from placenta do not enrich for trophoblast, and, ...
Adequate maternal, intervillous and fetal blood flow are all necessary for fetal wellbeing. Compromise to any part of this exchange would be detrimental to pregnancy outcome. Preeclampsia is associated with reduced maternal spiral artery flow, resulting in reduced placental perfusion. This in turn creates an ischemic environment which may pre-dispose morphological changes in placental villi. This pilot study utilized morphometric image analysis to examine some features of the fetal component of the placenta in normotensive (NT) and pre-eclamptic (PE) groups. The features examined included: density of placental villi (expressed as percentage of field area occupied by placental tissue); stem vessel carrying capacity (expressed as percentage of stem villus area occupied by vessel lumina); the thickness of the stem arterial walls relative to artery size (expressed as percentage of artery area occupied by arterial wall) and the extent of fibrosis associated with villi (expressed as percentage of ...

*All members with a current pass (5 or 10-class) recieve $25 off placenta encapsulation. Enter code STUDENT25 at checkout! The placenta is your bodys temporary organ that delivers nutrients and oxygen to the baby during the pregnancy, and it also removes waste for the baby. Tradition and holistic medical customs embrace a number of potential advantages which come from ingesting the placenta once the baby is born. Among these possible benefits are: Increased release of the hormone oxytocin, which helps the uterus return to normal size and encourages bonding with the infant. Increase in CRH, a stress-reducing hormone. Decrease in post-partum depression levels. Restoration of iron levels in the blood. Increase in milk production. This package includes a preliminary consultation, your encapsulated placenta (steamed with lemon and ginger, dehydrated, and put into capsules using the Traditional Chinese Method), and a unique placenta print. **Note: not all placentas are safe to be consumed.

Application: Placenta is used as skincare and cosmetics in the form of cream, serum and facial mask. As skincare, placenta is an effective skin firmer, lifter and hydrator. It also helps treat damaged skins from over-exfoliation. And the stem cells from the sheep is used as anti-aging properties. While placenta cream helps treat damaged skins from the sun, aging and dry skin, placenta serum especially from sheep placenta is normally applied topically as a skin restorative. As facial mask, it boosts collagen and firming of skin using stem cells from sheep placentas. ...

If a woman wants to use the placenta for her postpartum recovery, special consideration must be given to its care after the birth. From the time its born the placenta must be handled as though it were food, because that is what it will soon become. Just as you would not leave a steak out on the counter for several hours, the placenta should not be left sitting out. It should go straight into a food-grade container - not on the floor or on blue pads or towels. It should be double-bagged in gallon-sized ziplock bags - anything that can be sealed to protect the placenta from the air and put in a container with ice. It should be refrigerated as soon as possible for maximum freshness. The preparation of the placenta should begin within the first 24 hours after birth.. We will pick the placenta up at the hospital (or at your home if you have a home birth) and will deliver the pills to your home. The number of pills is directly related to the size of the placenta with the average number produced ...
Placenta Burial - Historically and culturally, a lot of honor has been given to the placenta and burying the placenta is one way this can be done. Some chose to honor a special place by burying the placenta there. Others bury it beneath a new tree or plant with the expectation that the placenta will provide extra nourishment to new growth. The ritual of returning the placenta to the Earth can feel a bit like completing the life cycle of the placenta and this tends to carry a lower ick factor than ingestion ...
Interpretation of the relationship between placenta and child varies widely around the world. The Ibo of Nigeria and Ghana consider the placenta to be the babys twin. Aymara and Quecha peoples of Bolivia say that the placenta has its own spirit. Malaysians consider the placenta to be the older sibling to the child. When the baby smiles unexpectedly, it is said that he is playing with his brother. The Parigi of the Celebes Islands also view the placenta as the older brother. It is carefully preserved in a special pot, wrapped in white cotton, and is ritually buried by the mother. Palm trees are then planted to honor the burial site. Similar beliefs can be found in Java and Bali. The Toba-Bataks of Sumatra believe the placenta is the younger brother. It is also thought to contain one of the seven souls that each person possesses, which can act as a sort of conscience for the child. In Iceland, it is held that the childs guardian spirit resides in the placenta, leading them to name it fylgia, ...
As quickly as your care provider has examined your placenta, the placenta should be placed into a food-grade container or bag, sealed tightly and refrigerated or placed on ice.. For Hospital Births~ Hospital staffs are very busy and can easily be distracted. Your placenta could accidentally be discarded or sent to pathology where it could be ruined for encapsulation. Your placenta is not their highest priority. Most hospitals will accommodate your desire to take the placenta home by preparing it for transport, but once packaged they will not accept any responsibility for proper storage of it during your stay. You, your partner or doula, must take responsibility to keep an eye on your placenta.. I recommend that either your birthing partner or doula be in charge of the placenta once it is birthed so that it is properly stored and not lost or damaged. It is always best to be prepared for unexpected situations. Bring a cooler and some gallon sized zip lock bags to the hospital with you.. Hospital ...

cilitated diffusion, active diffusion and pinocytosis. The nutrients transferred include water, electrolytes, glucose, amino acids, proteins etc. Also the waste products such as urea are passed out to the mothers blood by diffusion.. The placenta also produces many essential enzymes like oxytocinase, insulinase, heat stable alkaline phosphatase, etc and this help the fetus grow and survive. It also produced pregnancy associated plasma proteins. The placenta also functions as a barrier and lets some things pass through and not the others. It allows antibodies, hormones, antibiotics, etc to pass through which are very essential for the fetus as later this helps to build their immune system. However large molecules such as insulin cannot pass through. It also produces hormones for the fetus. Placenta in case of abnormalities can have different shapes. Placenta bilobata is included in this very category. In this condition the placenta consists of two equal lobes which are connected by placenta ...

From placenta cocktails to lasagnas I cant help but question why placenta eating is getting so popular among young mothers. For those who dont know where Im coming from: the placenta is the organ that attaches itself to the developing fetus within the mothers womb and acts as a bridge between developing fetal tissue and the uterine wall. The placenta delivers nutrients to the fetus and also removes waste. In addition to delivering a baby, a woman will also deliver the placenta afterwards. Lately many woman are asking to keep their afterbirth to eat later in a casserole or have processed into capsules for the rumored health benefits. But where did this idea come from, are there health benefits to eating your own placenta and if so, how do you do it?

Make note that in this term fetus, the chorion frondosum and the decidua basalis provide the fetal and maternal components of the placenta respectively. The chorion frondosum produces millions of villi that carry fetal capillaries so that the blood within them can come into close contact with maternal blood flowing through the intervillous spaces. Maternal and fetal blood do not mix in the placenta. The maternal blood flow into the placenta is through the decidua to bathe the chorionic villi and permit exchange of gasses, nutrients and metabolites between the maternal and fetal circulations. At birth, the placenta detaches from the wall of the uterus and follows the fetus. It is frequently referred to as the afterbirth. ...
Placenta is a valuable tool for women recovering from pregnancy and childbirth and many mothers worldwide benefit from the placentas healing properties. Thankfully, despite our western culture viewing the placenta merely as a by-product of birth, more and more women in our area are embracing the time-tested wisdom of placental remedies, and are rediscovering how these remedies can transform their postpartum experience.. Moms of all walks of life enjoy the benefits their placenta capsules have to offer them during their transition into motherhood and for the last three years I have been honored to help these moms during this amazing time of their lives as a local Placenta Encapsulation Specialist.. The placenta contains a rich array of the mothers own hormones that assist with milk production, bonding, and recovery; boosts energy levels and immune function; and reduces inflammation, postpartum bleeding, and stress. It also contains high levels of iron, protein, nutrients, and minerals to help ...
I was talking with my midwife recently about my fear of getting Postpartum depression. Ive been so depressed this pregnancy, that I am legitimately concerned about hitting a major low after giving birth. I would like to avoid taking anti-depressants, if possible, and breast feed for a year, like I did with Ari.. My midwife asked me this:. Have you considered placenta encapsulation?. I paused for a moment and then replied:. I dont even know what that means.. She went on to tell me that it is possible to take ones placenta, after birth of course, dry it out, condense it into capsules, and take them like vitamins. My midwife has seen these placenta pills help women combat postpartum, and work wonders with PMS.. It makes sense, when you think about it, ingesting your placenta. With the exception of humans, mammals automatically eat their placenta after birth.. Im not going to do this process on my own, but rather Ive hired a doula who specializes in placenta encapsulation to prepare the ...
A Placenta Art Print is a print made from the placenta; a lifelong memento of your childs birth. Placenta prints are made by taking the placenta coloring, using organic natural food safe dyes and pressing it, along with the umbilical cord, onto acid-free paper. The result is a unique work of art that looks something like a tree, which makes sense as the placenta is sometimes referred to as the Tree of Life. Once the print has dried, families can frame and display it as a conversation starter or keep it tucked away as a personal keepsake.. ...
Japanese hospitals and pharmacies use human and animal placenta for restorative purposes for more than a century. Many express questions about its viability, however there are explicit clinical preliminaries and therapeutic tests in Japan led for each drug on market. Japanese placenta meds turned out to be broadly known in the past few years, when placenta-based medications entered the world market.. The placenta is an organ that connects the developing embryo to the mothers uterine divider. The placenta helps feed the baby until birth, sifting toxins while letting in nutrients, minerals, oxygen, and different supplements from the mothers circulatory system. The placenta likewise reduces the danger of transmitting infections from the mother to her kid.

Many of those who take placenta pills to stave off postpartum testify that it has helped them to return to normalcy. Others, particularly those in the medical field, are a bit more skeptical.. One such skeptic is Dr. Deborah Kim. A psychiatrist in Pennsylvania, Dr. Kim cautions that failing to treat postpartum depression can have very serious consequences. Dr. Kim acknowledges that ingesting the placenta isnt likely to do any damage. She is also careful to point out that there is no real clinical research or testing to back up the theory that eating the placenta relieves symptoms of depression.. Most of us probably recoil at the idea of eating our own placenta. But its not as strange as it may sound on the surface. In all the animal kingdom, human beings are just about the only ones who dont eat their placenta shortly after giving birth. There are a number of reasons given for mammals eating their placenta:. ...
