Cell Cycle Modification in Trophoblast Cell Populations in the Course of Placenta Formation

  title={Cell Cycle Modification in Trophoblast Cell Populations in the Course of Placenta Formation},
  author={Tatiana G. Zybina and Eugenia V. Zybina},
It is well established that the presence of the diploid chromosome set in cell nuclei of the majority of tissues is a characteristic of vertebrates. This peculiarity was supplemented by the rule of the relative constancy of DNA in nuclei with diploid chromosome set (Boivin et al., 1948). However, some cells contain doubled or multiplied chromosome set as compared to other cells of the organism or other individuals of the species. As distinct from the generative polyploidy in which polyploidy… Expand

Role of cell cycling and polyploidy in placental trophoblast of different mammalian species.
Reduced mitoses, endoreduplication and depolyploidization appear to be an evolution strategy allowing to generate the functionally different trophoblast cell populations depending of the lifestyle of life of the animal species. Expand

Despite the limited possibilities of chromosome visualization trophoblast cells represent an interesting model to investigate the role of modification of gene copy number and their expression that is important for the normal or abnormal cell differentiation. Expand
Cell cycle progression and different ways of cell and genome reproduction in the invasive trophoblast cells of the silver fox placenta
In a minor trophoblast cell population, non-mitotic genome segregation most probably takes part in retention of cell reproductive potential, and Classical endomitosis may be a mode of genome multiplication and correlate with both the persistence and attenuation of cell cycles. Expand
Three steps to the immortality of cancer cells: senescence, polyploidy and self-renewal
It is proposed that genotoxic resistance is thereby afforded through a programmed life-cycle-like process which intimately unites senescence, polyploidy and stemness. Expand
Invasion and genome reproduction of the trophoblast cells of placenta junctional zone in the field vole, Microtus rossiaemeridionalis
In M. rossiaemeridionalis the role of barrier between semiallogenic foetal and maternal tissues is shifted from the highly endopolyploid SGTC to the specific subpopulation of glycogen‐rich non‐giant ‘border’ trophoblast cells that, however, exceed the ploidy of the deeply located and/or proliferative JZ trophOBlast cells.

Occurrence of polytene chromosomes in the bicellular and mature pollen grains of endangered plant species Pancratium maritimum L. (Amaryllidaceae)
Abstract Endoreduplication is a modified form of mitotic cycle in which repeated rounds of DNA replication occur without chromosome segregation and cell division, leading to formation of larger andExpand
Macroautophagy-aided elimination of chromatin
Both kinds of chromatin autophagy provide tumor cells with the opportunity to repair DNA, sort and resort chromatin, reduce DNA content, and enhance survival. Expand

Polyploidization of liver cells.
The current state of understanding about how polyploidization is regulated during normal and pathological liver growth is reviewed and detail by which mechanisms hepatocytes becomepolyploid is reviewed. Expand
The biochemistry of differentiation of mouse trophoblast: studies on polyploidy.
That earlier developmental events such as the formation of the blastocoel cavity may in some way trigger polyploidization of trophoblast is not inconsistent with the studies described. Expand
Genome multiplication of extravillous trophoblast cells in human placenta in the course of differentiation and invasion into endometrium and myometrium. I. Dynamics of polyploidization.
The results suggest that the human cytotrophoblast invasion into the uterine wall requires an optimum, not the highest, ploidy level, whereas highly polyploid cells may form a subpopulation at the border between the maternal and fetal parts of placenta. Expand
Genome multiplication of extravillous trophoblast cells in human placenta in the course of differentiation and invasion into endometrium and myometrium. II. Mechanisms of polyploidization.
The present data suggest that acquirement of an invasive phenotype of EVT cells is accompanied by switching from mitotic division to endoreduplication cycle, and the prevalence of metaphases at the boundary of the distal part of cell columns suggests that restitutional mitoses may be involved, even partly, in human trophoblast cell polyploidization.

Polyploidization and endomitosis in giant cells of rabbit trophoblast
It was found that giant cell nuclei contain DNA in amounts corresponding to 32–512 chromosomal sets, and most of the nuclei have levels of 128c and 256c, with the degree of polyploidy varying from 1c to 32c. Expand
Human hepatocyte polyploidization kinetics in the course of life cycle
The processes of polyploidization in normal human liver parenchyma from 155 individuals aged between 1 day and 92 years were investigated by Feulgen-DNA cytophotometry and it was shown that during postnatal liver growth the polyploidsization process is similar to that in the rat. Expand
Polytene chromosomes in mouse trophoblast giant cells.
It is concluded that the mechanism of giant cell DNA amplification involves multiple rounds of DNA replication in the absence of both karyokinesis and cytokinesis, and that sister chromatids, but not homologous chromosomes, remain closely associated during this process. Expand
Roads to polyploidy: The megakaryocyte example
Overall, polyploidy is associated with an orchestrated change in expression of several genes, of which, some may be a result of high ploidy and hence a determinant of a new cell physiology, while others are inducers ofpolyploidization. Expand
Genome multiplication in growth and development : biology of polyploid and polytene cells
This authoritative account of the developmental biology of genome multiplication, the reproduction of the genetic material that results in polyploid and polytene cells, is based on many years' study by its authors and is particularly valuable in that it includes scientific results previously available only in Russian.
