Erythrophagocytosis by the trophoblastic epithelial cells of the sheep placenta was studied in different stages of gestation. Light-microscopic observations showed that the erythrophagocytosis became more and more conspicuous with increasing stages of gestation. Electron-microscopically, this process appeared to take place in the same way as described for red cell destruction elsewhere. Light-microscopically, a high acid phosphatase activity could be demonstrated in the cells which took part in… CONTINUE READING
